Ogunjobi Urges Oshoala To Return To School

–Ex-scribe congratulates her on CAF Award

Former Secretary-General of Nigeria Football Federation and erstwhile chairman of the body’s technical committee, 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 of Prime Football Club, opined that he was shocked when he knew the Rivers Angels goal-poacher is a Secondary School (SS2) drop-out.

“I was shocked the day I heard Asisat Oshoala is a Secondary School drop-out despite her level of intelligence,” the Pillar of Sports in State of Osun said.


Ogunjobi, while giving Oshoala a fatherly advice said now that her ovation is loud, she should return to school and further her education.

“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.

Meanwhile, the former Sole Administrator of Shooting Stars Sports Club of Ibadan, congratulated Oshoala for emerging as the African Women Player and Young Player of the year 2014.

    What kind of advice is this?
    This girl is a whiz kid in soccer and she should leave developing her career to go to school? And do what after that? Marry? Ogunjobi, you are the one that needs to go back to school. This is negative advice.
    Asisat, continue with your soccer and at best do part time studies.

  • @conscience. Please go and change this your nickname. You really mean it that the fatherly advise to Ashoala is out of place? Are you serious? If you don’t know Ashoala can combine the two. Schooling and football. @Ashoala. Please don’t listen to this so call conscience. Go back to school and still face your football career. You will be a better player, a better friend, a better mother and a better everything when you are educated. Not this kind of half baked education you gas dropping out at SS2. It is only Book Haram that want women like you not to attend school. Don’t allow it. Go back to school as Chief Taiwo Ogunjubi has advised. He means well for you and is your grandpa.

  • Asisat Oshoala can combine her business of playing as a professional footballer and as well enrol to study
    for any course she wishes to on part time basis period, this my candid opinion.
