boys.

“This was where most of the league sides used to recruits good players in the 80s and early 90s, but the case is not the same now. I can identify five good boys from this Lead City team that are ripe for Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL)”, Onigbinde noted.

University of Ibadan that ended as the second runners-up after falling to the superior firepower of the Polytechnic Ibadan at the semifinal stage was presented with a bronze trophy by the officials of the telecommunication giant, Globacom that sponsored the Ibadan anniversary event.
