Sad.

May God give his family & loved ones the fortitude to bear the loss and give those of us who still have the gift of life the grace to learn from the mistakes of others.

Definitely served the country as a player and administrator, but you can't but feel that he, and the likes of Ekeji with their background, education and exposure, should have done more to lift our football.

Not easy, I know, but a lot of good things don't come easy.

RIP, Taiwo Ogunjobi.

RIP Chief. I will try and get details of funeral arrangements.

For all his faults, you have to give Chief Ogunjobi credit for being accessible. Many CEs here contacted him regularly.

Have known him since his playing days at Unife - he also used to date a lady living opposite us on campus at that time.
Followed his playing career through IICC Shooting Stars (as Captain) and the few times he was capped as a Green Eagle.
However, he became popular as an Administrator in the Nigerian Football Association, rising to the post of Sec. Gen., and until his demise, Chairman of the Osun State FA.

He served his Country and we will remember the good times. Thanks, Skippo, for the great memories!
Rest in Peace.
