Presiden George Weah And Others To Play At Gov Ambode Farewell Football Match

The organising committee for the Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode farewell football match has confirmed May 18, 2019 for the high profile game.

The epoch match, according to the organisers, would see former World Footballer of the Year and President of Liberia, George Weah play along with notable world football legends including Didier Drogba.

The Chairman Organising Committee for ‘The Match’, Nigerian ex-international, Wahidi Akanni, in a statement in Lagos on Wednesday, disclosed that the game was aimed at giving Ambode a befitting farewell.

“Gov. Ambode has served Lagos meritoriously for four years, so the match will be played at the newly remodelled Onikan Stadium on May 18, which is 11 days to his final handover on May 29.

“Aside from George Weah and Drogba, other African legends have signed up for the game between African Legends and Ex- Super Eagles’ stars.
Others who will play on the side of the African legends are Michael Essien and Samuel Eto’O Fills, ” Akanni said.

He also stated that, for the event to have trappings of youth football development, there would be a football clinic at the Campos Square.

“The stage has been set for a curtain raiser between Lagos United Under-15 boys and girls against their Kebbi State counterparts.
This is to spice up the game aimed to celebrating the sports achievements of Ambode in Lagos State.
The U-15 games are aimed at raising awareness for grassroots football development, which has gained prominence across the country.

“The proceeds from these games will be donated to the children of some ex-internationals who have been finding it difficult to pay school fees,” he said. (NAN)


  1. misplaced priorities births misplaced loyalty.

    1. You are really native, the doctor I seriously doubt. A whole president of a countyis coming down for a novelty match which he'll participate in and the proceeds used for charity, and you call that misplaced priority. How is your president placing his priorities.

    2. To him it is misplaced priorities, he will only use monies to buy human head for rituals.

  2. Make person no go fall down die again... O

  3. All I'm seeing there is Didier Drogba. Such a great player and game changer. I love him!

  4. Let him or any of them not come and slump and die ooooo...

  5. What of Peter Okoye Mr.P ... I want him on that field

  6. Farewell Governor Ambode
