President, Africa Students Football Union (ASFU), Professor Seun Omotayo, has congratulated the duo of Victor Osimhen and Assist Oshoala for clinching the converted CAF Awards of Africa Footballer of the year 2023 in the male and female categories.

Prof. Omotayo stated that the winners have put Nigeria in the history books as the first Africa country whose nationals put up such showing.

Prof. Omotayo, who was the sports psychologist of the 1989 Flying Eagles team which recorded the famous “Damman Miracle” feat in Saudi Arabia, urged the Ministry of Sports Development to position sports as a special purpose vehicle for prevention of poverty and engendering upward social mobility of young sports men and women for the overall good of the Nigerian society.

According to him “the ministry should launch a fit-for-purpose Sports-for-Development programme that shall discover more Asisat Oshoalas and Victor Osimhens.”

Asked when he would return to Nigeria after a long sojourn working in foreign universities where he has received several accolades, Prof. Omotayo simply said “very soon as Nigeria is home.”
