CHAIRMAN of Lobi Stars FC and Deputy Governor of Benue State, Engineer Benson Abounu, has announced the appointment of Dominic Iorfa as the Vice Chairman of Lobi Stars FC after sacking Mr. Tama Aondofa and its entire management team.
Iorfa had trained Lobi Stars FC as vice chairman a few years ago.
Just last week, the Club sacked its Technical Adviser, Eddy Doumbraye.
Engr. Abounu who announced the sack to newsmen in his office on Monday, explained that the action became expedient in order to reposition the team and save it from being relegated to the lower division.
He decried the poor performance of Tama’s management in less than one year as administrator of the club.
“There were recent changes that brought Tama on board but in less than one year the club is going down the drain. We have done everything to bring it back. He asked for certain things to improve on the club yet to no avail.
“I and the Governor were disturbed when the club was in the 13th position. We called him (Tama) and he promised to make certain changes and lift the club back. He fired the technical adviser he brought and made few changes in the management of the team
“We are in the 19th position and this is dangerous and if we allow things this way, it will be embarrassing.
“After due consideration with all stakeholders including the governor, we asked for Tama’s resignation which he gave us some few minutes ago. The entire management is dissolved. A new management will be constituted to save the club from relegation.
“After due consideration, we decided that Dominic Iorfa who has vast experience of football management and administration be appointed as Vice Chairman. His knowledge will be useful to save the club”, Abounu said.
In the same wise, the Club has appointed a veteran sportswriter, Uja Emmanuel as its Media Director.
