Taiwo Ogunjobi To Be Buried In Ibadan

The family of the late football administrator and NFF Scribe, Chief Taiwo Ogunjobi has released the burial arrangement of the late football icon.
Chief Taiwo Ogunjobi who until his death was the chairman of the Osun state football association died on the 11th of February after a brief illness at the University College Hospital Ibadan. He died at the age of 65. He is set to be buried on the 15th of March in the city of Ibadan.
This was made known by the Ogunjobi family through a press statement signed by the brother, Mr Rotimi Ogunjobi. In the press statement, the family expressed appreciation for all the condolences and well wishes from the Nigeria sporting community.
“The family of late Chief Taiwo Joseph Ogunjobi 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, realized 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.
“To this end, we wish to announce to the General public that the final ‘home’ going proceedings would take place between Wednesday 13th through Friday 15th of March, 2019 in Ibadan, Oyo State.”
