According to the organisers of the event, the National Association of Nigerian Professional Footballers {NANPF}, said at the weekend that the lawmaker, who is the Chairman, House Committee on Culture and Tourism, has also promised to do more in memory of Nigeria’s longest serving national team captain, Stephen Okechukwu Keshi.
