NFF appoints new media officer for Flamingoes

Flamingoes will take part in World Cup in Costa Rica

The Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, has appointed Jennifer Okoye the Media Officer of the U-17 National women side, Flamingoes.

According to the letter from the NFF, Ms. Okoye’s appointment took effect from December 20, 2013. She will take charge of all media-related activities of the U-17 women national team.

Until her appointment, Ms. Okoye, who holds a degree in Mass Communication from Ebonyi State University, Abakiliki, was a Nigerian correspondent for BBC Fast Track at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

She has worked with Africa, was a one-time sports presenter/producer at Confluence Television and Grace 95.5 FM Lokoja, and is the founder of the Young and Vibrant Initiative, YVI.

She is expected to intimate the public with activities of the Coach Bala Nkiyu-led wards as they prepare for the 2014 FIFA U-17 World Cup in Costa Rica.

On her appointment, Ms. Okoye thanked the NFF for the opportunity to serve and promised to bring her wealth of experience to bear in the course of her duties.

She, however, appealed for the cooperation of media colleagues and football stakeholders in ensuring the activities of the national team side are well reported.

“I’m delighted with the opportunity and prepared for the task ahead. I will appeal for the cooperation of my colleagues in giving the team the needed publicity,” she said.
