Osun State Governor Gboyega Oyetola has described the late Chief Taiwo Ogunjobi as an illustrious son of the state who served diligently till he breathed his last.

“As the chairman of the Osun State Football Association, he gave his best in the service of the state, galvanizing the youths and pushing for the development of sports, football in particular,” Governor Oyetola said in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Adeniyi Adesina.

“I commiserate with the widow, children, family members, friends and the Nigerian sporting family, over this irreparable loss.

“Ogunjobi will be sorely missed. He gave his best as a club football player, national team player, and as an administrator, who rose to the pinnacle as Secretary General of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

“His tenure as Osun State Football Association chairman brought tremendous development to football in this state. May his soul rest in peace,” Governor Oyetola said.

He enjoined the family to take solace in the fact that “he lived a life of service to God and humanity.”
