Ahead Anambra State FA, Ex-Super Eagles, Iloenyosi States Reasons He’s Contesting
One of the aspirants eyeing the position of the Chairman of Anambra State Football Association, Chikelue Iloenyosi has disclosed why he wants to be the next chairman of his state’s FA.
The ex Nigerian-international said he wants to change the fortunes of grassroots football of the state if elected. The election holds this Friday.
Speaking on a Lagos-based radio sports programme on Tuesday, the former Asteras Tripoli of Libya star said he is well grounded in football administration, adding that he would bring this to bear if elected.
He noted that he would revive grassroots football because it would be a pool, where national football coaches can come and scout for budding talents. He stressed that Anambra State in the past used to provide the best legs for the national teams, but regretted that things have nosedived.
Iloenyosi, who had four caps for the Super Eagles of Nigeria added that he hopes to consolidate on the successes of immediate past Chairman, Senator Ifeanyi Uba if elected come Friday.
On how he hopes to run the affairs of the FA if elected considering that funds are always scanty, he argued that he would use his contacts in the corporate world to entice sponsors to be part of his vision for the state’s football.
Continuing, the former Tennis Borussia Berlin of Germany defender concluded by saying that he would abide by the guidelines stated by the electoral body and he would accept the outcome of the poll provided it was not fraught.
