The management, players and staff of the Ondo State Football Agency, (ODSFA) has described the sudden death of Chief Taiwo Ogunjobi as shocking .

The agency expressed this in a release made available to newsmen in Akure , the State Capital .

According to the release, “we are still in shock over the sudden death of Nigeria footballing icon, Chief Taiwo Ogunjobi.

Chairman of the Agency, Otunba Tajudeen Akinyemi’s sobering expression of grief during the week summed up the feeling of sadness of the ODSFA workforce since the demise of the former Secretary General of the Nigeria Football Federation and Osun State FA boss three days ago.

“Oh, this is too big a loss. The Sunshine Stars President mourned stressing how can we get over this, we are talking of a former inspirational player and captain of IICC, national team (Green Eagles) and astute football administrator that contributed immensely to the Nigerian game.”

“Honestly I feel Chief still has much to offer, so sad death has come calling. We cannot question God; it is his will that he bowed out at this time. He will be missed, but I am quite sure his legacies will live on.”

“We at ODSFA offer our heartfelt condolences to the family Skippo left behind and pray God grant all pained by his transition, particularly the Ogunjobis and the entire football stakeholders in Nigeria the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss”. Akinyemi who also doubles as Sunshine Queens and Rising Stars President concluded.

In addition to a minute silence before kickoff  players and officials will  wear black armbands, action will be paused in the 65th minute when Sunshine Stars FC host Insurance of Benin in an NPFL match day 9 game Thursday, to honour the late Hero as directed by the League Management Company.
