As the Nigeria Football Federation are making frantic efforts to harmonise the factionalized football supporters clubs in Nigeria and return them back to one strong body, the founder and President of Super Eagles’ Supporters Club (SESC), Prince Vincent Okumagba seems to be preparing to lead the new body.

Recent reports monitored from the Glass House shows that plans are in top gear by the Nigerian football apex body to announce the name for the united body for the supporters club as all the big shots in all the various supporters clubs are showing favourable disposition to the peace move.

A source close to the Prince of the Okumagba dynasty of Delta State has confirmed that the CEO of Pixal Petroleum Ltd, an independent marketer of petroleum products and one time Vice Chairman of IPMAN Lagos satellite depot is considering vying for the top position of the new supporters’ club body.

Okumagba, who has just returned from a working visit to Kwara State where he was warmly received by the executives of SESC, has Diploma in marketing from the University of Lagos, and a BA English degree from the Lagos State University.

The astute sport administrator, who was onetime acting Chairman of Nigeria Football Supporter Club (NFSC) under the able leadership of Dr Rafiu Ladipo and Chairman between 2013 to 2015 before he left to establish Super Eagles Supporters Club of Nigeria, and currently the President of the association as well as the Vice President of African Supporters Association.

A widely travelled Prince Okumagba who is also a FIFA fan leader for Nigeria has been to many FIFA World Cups including France ‘98, Germany 2006, South Africa 2010, Brazil 2014, Russia 2018, Olympic Games in Australia 2000 and London 2012, age grade World Cups in Netherlands in 2005, Canada 2007, and Most AFCON tournaments and many more.

His aspiration has, however, been receiving wide acceptance and support from stakeholders and most sports fan within and outside the country.
