The Lagos State Government in conjunction with the Sports Writer’s Association of Nigeria and the Nigeria Football Supporters Club, have set up a committee that will help plan the Lagos Farewell Testimonial Match in honour of former Super Eagles coaches, Amodu Shaibu and Stephen Keshi. The game is scheduled for the Teslim Balogun Stadium on July 23, 2016.
Dr. Rafiu Ladipo, the chairman of the committee, explained that the event was meant to raise money for the families of the late coaches.
He said: “The Farewell Testimonial match would see the Super Eagles players battle against Lagos All Stars team in the main match of the day, while the curtain raiser would be a game between the Lagos SWAN team and the Supporters Club.
“This would be followed by Musical Concert where prominent Nigerian musicians and comedians would perform in the entertainment aspect of the programme. This aspect of the event is coordinated by veteran music act, Chris Mba.”
