An elated father of the day, now vice-chairman of Edo State Football Association, Frank Ilaboya would later expressed delight that esteemed colleagues and members of the fourth estate of the realm trooped out in large numbers to honour his invitation for the most memorable day to date for his delectable daughter.

“I am most happy and highly honoured with how God has made this day successful,” said the chief executive of radio and television programmes under the banner of Sportsville Communications.

“I am equally happy that my colleagues in sports journalism and many personalities that we have met in the line of our job also turned up for the occasion. I cannot find the words to thank them enough.”
