FCT FA drums support for Women League boss
By; Jacob Onjewu Dickson, Abuja.
The board of the Federal Capital Territory Football Association (FCTFA) has thrown its support for the ambition of the Chairperson of the Nigeria Women Football League Chief (Mrs.) Dilichukwu Onyedinma to re-contest for the position in the forth- coming elections into the Boards of the various League bodies in the country.
According to the Chairman of the association, Alhaji Musa Saeed Talle, the board arrived at the decision after a proper review of the achievements of the Chairperson in last four years.
“The Board of the FCT FA during its meeting took a critical look at the performance of the Nigeria Women Football League vis-a vis the chairperson of the board in last four years and we came to the resolution that she had performed excellently well, considering the achievements recorded by the various national women teams within the period under review.
“Not minding the harsh environment she found herself in the last dispensation in the Football Federation, it takes the doggedness of people with great passion, and determination to achieve the feat the (women) board recorded.
“We have no option than to endorse her for the second term in the office. We are very convinced that with the good working relationship she has with the present leadership of the (Nigeria football) federation, that Nigeria Women Football would no doubt maintain its leadership position in Africa, and compete favourably with others in Europe, America and Asia” Talle said.
Talle did not hesitate to take a swipe at those who are rubbishing the recently concluded Women Super Six Football competition held in Umuahia, Abia State, saying that such people are enemies of the game in the country.
It would be recalled that the FCT Chapter of the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN) last week passed a vote of confidence on the Board of the Nigeria Women Football League led by Chief (Mrs.) Dilichukwu Onyedinma, asking the League congressmen and women to return her back to office.
