    Congratulations Dr. Mumuni Alao…the harbinger and doyen of football/sports journalism in Nigeria. This is a honor well deserved, not just by virtue of your academic achievement but by your decades of unfettered undefiled multiple award winning journalistic ingenuity. Thank you for the joy you’ve brought to us over the years.

    But remember Doc, a leader is not successful until his successor(s) has/have succeeded, hence, the world needs more like you from you. Bless us with more of you to receive the baton from you as you age gracefully.

    Congratulations to you once again. Oye a mori o…!
