Honour for Referee Joseph Ogabor

The leadership of Nigeria Football Federation, led by the President, Mr. Amaju Melvin Pinnick on Monday lauded the performance of Referee Joseph Ogabor in Sunday’s Nigeria Professional Football League Matchday 27 clash between Lobi Stars of Makurdi and Rangers International of Enugu.

NFF 2nd Vice President/LMC chairman, Shehu Dikko, had disclosed at the opening ceremony of the FIFA MA Elite Course that he received heartwarming phone calls from the management of visiting team, Rangers FC (who lost 1-3) to the effect that Ogabor had an excellent outing in the game played at the Aper Aku Stadium in Makurdi.

All dignitaries in the hall, from NFF President Pinnick to the NFF Executive Committee members and NRA executives, devoted minutes to praising the Ogabor, who also emerged tops at a recent Confederation of African Football referee course in Cairo, Egypt.

“We need more of Ogabors in Nigerian Football: Young referees who care for nothing other than to achieve excellence, through upholding the values of integrity and fairness. The NFF is proud of you and will continue to monitor your performance, just as we will work assiduously with the NRA to produce more referees who are committed to officiating matches according to the laws of the game,” Pinnick said.
