Former Nigeria Football Federation Secretary General, Taiwo Ogunjobi, has passed on.

Sports journalist, Colin Udoh, announced the demise on his Twitter handle on Monday morning. 

Ogunjobi who was the general manager of Shooting Stars Football Club, indicated interest in the NFF job in 2018 which was eventually won by the incumbent, Amaju Pinnick. 

Ogunjobi had previously run for the NFF presidency in 2014, but lost to Pinnick.

A former footballer, Ogunjobi made his name with WNDC (now Shooting Stars Sports Club) and led the Nigeria Academicals between 1973-74. 

He played for Nigeria at the Nigeria/Ghana Sports festival before he was called up to the Green Eagles in 1973.

Ogunjobi was also a one-time General Secretary of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
