Former Nigerian international, Segun Odegbami has declared interest in the Presidency of the world football governing body FIFA.
Segun Odegbami made his interest public yesterday in a statement released by his campaign team. He said in the statement, “the current scandal at FIFA is the organisation’s worst crisis in its 111 years of existence.
“Moving forward, FIFA thus require a new era of leadership that can restore the dignity of the noble sport and that of this esteemed international institution with global followership”.
“Times like this call for all concerned members of the global football family to contribute to the actualisation of renewed objectives for FIFA by electing a deserving and qualified person, with the right character that can achieve the desired goals and restore confidence and integrity to the organization and its activities. The world is very interested in who becomes the next President of FIFA, considering the present image and state of this institution and I see myself fitting into this role” He added.
FIFA President Sepp Blatter stepped down a few months ago after series of allegations rocked FIFA and new elections for his successor will hold on February 26, 2016.
