ORJI UZOR KALU ASPIRES TO BECOME FIFA PRESIDENT, GETS BACKING FROM NFF MEMBERS

Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu
Have you heard that a controversial politician, football lover, owner of OUK Football Club, Chairman of Slok Group of Companies and erstwhile governor of Abia State, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, is nursing an ambition of becoming the next FIFA president?  Tectono Business Review gathered that Dr. Kalu’s aspiration got a boost at the weekend when two executive members of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) threw their weight behind him.

The two NFF executive members are Alhaji Yusuf Fresh and Alhaji Ahmed Mu’azu Kawu. While speaking with Tectono Business Review separately, they endorsed the ambition of Dr. Kalu but encouraged him to make a formal request for endorsement to the NFF.

Alhaji Fresh elucidated that so far Dr. Kalu was member of the NFF technical committee; he had every right to aspire to the topmost position in world football with his achievement with Enyimba International of Aba while he held sway as the Abia State governor.

According to Alhaji Kawu, the ambition of Dr. Kalu was normal but urged him to go through the proper channel to actualize the dream.
