Former Super Eagles captain, Austin Okocha, has emerged the new Delta State Football Association Chairman, having won Friday’s polls.
Okocha received 26 votes while his co-contestant, Evans Agbo, only mustered a vote for himself.
Okocha thus joins the likes of Christopher Green, Abubakar Ladan and Ganiyu Majekodunmi, amongst others, who all emerged as winners in their respective State FA elections.
Okocha enjoyed an illustrious career with the Super Eagles as he is one of only two Nigerian footballers to play at three FIFA World Cup finals.
Jay-Jay Okocha’s club career took him through Germany, France, England and Turkey, and he is presently Head of the NFF Technical Study Group.
Okocha, who had served as vice chairman before the elevation, replaces Amaju Pinnick, who announced his intention to relinquish the post on the day he was elected President of Nigeria Football Federation, September 30, 2014.
