He promised to focus more on youth programmes for male and female footballers that would enable them to realise their potential.

“As witnessed during the maiden NFF/AITEO Awards, we hope to ensure we organise a world-class event during the second edition and I will champion the course of full digitalisation of the competition department of the Federation,” Akinwunmi said.
