The family of former Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Secretary General, late Chief Taiwo Joseph Ogunjobi, has announced his burial plan.
According to a statement signed by the personal aide of the deceased, Tunde Shamsudeen, late Chief Ogunjobi burial has been slated for between Wednesday 13th and Friday 15th of March 2019 in Ibadan, Oyo State.
“We wish to announce to the General public that the final ‘home’ going proceedings would take place between Wednesday 13th and Friday 15th of March, 2019 in Ibadan, Oyo State,” the statement reads.
Further, the family while thanking those who have condoled them on the passage of the chairman of Osun State Football Association, said “ We would like to thank all that have directly or indirectly offered us their heart-felt condolences, support and well wishes during this trying period.
“Whilst the family considers it a heavy loss to the family, we have since Monday February 11, 2019 realised that our ‘Taiwo’ was not just ours but one that the sporting community and the nation at large loved and respected so much. We are delighted to have shared him with Nigeria, even the world.
“Though pained beyond comprehension, we are consoled by the many comforting messages from across the sporting world and firmly believe he could only have gone to a better place, where if football is played he will once again excel as a talented natural leader.”
