Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babatunde Raji Fashola (SAN), has given the Lagos Sub-Seat of the 2009 FIFA U-17 World Cup, Nigeria 2009 a pat on the back for the excellent hosting of the cadet global championship last October in the state.
Fashola said after receiving the Sub-Seatâ€™s report on the event, that great work done by the committee at the Lagos centre saved the country from an imminent embarrassing report by the Vice President of FIFA, Mr. Jack Warner.
â€œAt a time the country is facing leadership challenges. It behoves on me to say that these men and women of proven ability and integrity have done us proud. Such leadership qualities that this nation desires are abound in these men that have served Lagos.
â€œWhen Lagos was chosen as a centre, I had no doubt who would be the chairman. I have known Mr.Amanze Uchegbulam for a long time. I believed in his leadership and administrative qualities.
I will recommend him for any public appointment with my eyes closed.”
