As the 2010 election for theÂ NFA board approaches, former Super Eagles player Bright Omokaro, a.k.a 10-10, has said the board should be aÂ combination of both new and old members, in other to give room for collective ideas for a smooth running of football in the country.
Speaking with Sunday Vanguard sports, Omokaro said that having some people who have been in the system before on the BoardÂ is to help run football smoothly in the country.
According to him, removing all the members completely and putting another new peopleÂ will not be ideal, stressing that personally, he has contributed immensely to football and his wealth of experience in managing football will be handy.
â€œAs far as Iâ€™m concerned,Â Lulu has tried, if he is contesting he should be allowed. This is because he has done well and also managed the countryâ€™s football well. I think he has the pedigree to manage the business. Football management is for those who areÂ broad minded. There should be no sentiments. If you look at the way football is in the past, is quite different compared to what it is today.
â€œIf Lulu is still interested, he should be given the chance. Football in other countries is governed by people who are well read and have played the game but it does not mean the entire Board should be completely sweep out. Toro is one good person that is also good for the post of the NFA boss,â€ he said.
