In the next few hours, Lagos Football Stakeholders will be confronted with the responsibility of making a choice between stabilising and improving on the round leather game ecosystem in the state, or slipping back to a mediaeval uncertainty era.
Football lovers in the State are seeking for a man of exceptional competence and clear-cut vision for the growth of football in the state. Otunba Tade Azeez stands head and shoulder above his contesting rival for the positions of the Lagos FA chairmanship position.
A two-term President of the Nigerian Referees Association(NRA) has no doubt earned his stripes in the Nigerian football scene.
The central plank of Otunba Tade’s Lagos football developmental drive are grassroots football development, making sure Lagos remains the hub of football in Nigeria, competitive and attractive state league, best state FA cup competition, developing women football in the state. Coaches and referees will be fully integrated in the scheme of things and not left in the lurch.
All these are evocative of a thoroughbred football administrator who knows his onions, which Otunba Tade Azeez exemplifies by coming up with these lofty football development agenda.
Compared to a political wanderer, a former Lagos APC state secretary, who is only competing for the seat of the Lagos FA top position for personal reasons. A greenhorn, tyro in football administration. Otunba Tade Azeez is imbued with the requisite experience and has undergone the necessary learning curve in the football ecosystem to bring about the necessary changes to put Lagos State firmly back on the Nigerian and African football map.
Otunba Tade Azeez reverberate the yearnings and aspirations of many football lovers for Lagos State to reclaim her pride of place in the Nigerian cum African football landscape.
He has come prepared and will no doubt hit the ground running upon his election as the next Lagos State FA chairman.
His choice is no doubt a no-brainer.
