The items donated by the pioneer secretary of the Ondo State Football Agency (ODSFA) were Chairs, Tables and standing fan.
Ologbese ,in a chat with newsmen, disclosed that as a seasoned football administrator, he knew that the Ondo State chapter of the sports writers association would need the equipment to effectively take off their office.
Ologbese added that the members of the association are a great stakeholder in sports arena, which must be respected and supported by all the sports administrators.
He reiterated the need for the new leadership to ensure they unite all members for the growth of the association.
“They can make or mar any football administrators including football club, because we can not move without shaking our head, we are not perfect on this note we need to support the association.
“I’m not donating to the association so that they will not do their job as a watchdog of the society and the voice for the voiceless but to compliment their efforts as a partner in progress as far as sport is concerned in Ondo State.
Chairman of Sports Writers Association in Ondo State, Segun Giwa thanked the donor for his kind gesture in associating with Sports Journalists in the state.
“We thank the former FA Chairman for being the first among the stakeholders to donate to the association towards our efforts to equip our secretariat to standard,” he said.
