Tajudeen Ajide, the Executive Chairman of Surulere Local Government also as YSFON Grand Patron in the South West declared that “this is the best time to start to fix Nigerian football through meaningful grassroots football development”.
He opined, “Now that we have Taju Disu in Lagos YSFON, Waheed Lawal in Ogun State, Tajudeen Ajide as YSFON Grand Patron in the South West and we also have Tijani Babangida as the PFAN national president, there should be no excuse for football development failure in the South West and Nigeria as a whole.
