He maintained that the collective efforts of those involved, from the government of Ogun State to the passionate organizers, are poised to shape the future of football officiating in Nigeria.

As the date draws near, the football community eagerly awaits the transformative impact of the 2023-2024 Football Season Match Commissioner Seminar, an event set to chart a new course for football in Nigeria".
