KOGI State Governor, Captain Idris Ichalla Wada’s son, Hasssan, has clinched the vice chairmanship position of the Kogi Football Association.

 At the 2015 Elective Congress held at the Hill Top Paradise Hotel, Lokoja, Isah polled 11 votes to defeat his closest rival, Hassan Yusuf, who picked five out of the 16 total votes cast.

  Shina Akande, who would have slugged it out with Wada, was, however, disqualified by the electoral body for coming from same West Senatorial District as the chairman elect in compliance with the electoral guidelines of the FA.

 Other members elected to complete the nine-man executive board of the state FA include Prince George Dahomey, Ahmed Shogodo and Stephen Bello representing the central senatorial district.

 Others are Peter Ogwuche, proprietor of Nigeria Women Professional League club, Ogwuche Babes FC and Coach Henry Ameh, representing Kogi East, while Abiodun Olawale and Dan Usman were elected to represent Kogi West.
