Former Secretary-General of Nigeria Football Federation, Chief Taiwo Ogunjobi, has urged newly crowned African Women footballer of the year, Asisat Oshoala, to return to high school for her to be academically equipped for the future.
The Chairman Prime Football Club opined that he was shocked when he knew the Rivers Angels goal-poacher is a Secondary School 2 drop-out.
“I was shocked the day I heard Asisat Oshoala is a drop-out despite her level of intelligence,” the Pillar of Sports in Osun State said.
He said: “Education is important, football is temporary and if you don’t leave football, football will leave you one day.
“I played football to the highest level (Green Eagles) but education was what I fell back on after my active football career. We live in a society where the ability of an individual to be successful depends largely on their education.”
“I am using this medium to appeal to Asisat Oshoala to return to school so as to get her future properly secured.”
Oshoala, whose dream was to become a lawyer, incurred the wrath of her parents when she dropped out of school to pursue a football career.
