Odegbami to contest FIFA Presidency

Segun Odegbami has joined the race for FIFA Presidency. The election is expected to produce the successor of Joseph Sepp Blatter as President of  the World soccer-governing body.

Candidates have until October 26, 2015   to come forward to signify interest. They must have the confirmed backing of at least five of Fifa’s 209 member nations, and be cleared by the world governing body’s ethics committee, to be able to stand.

Liberian football chief Musa Bility remains the other African who showed interest in the Zurich office but his interest was recently cut short  by Confederation of African Football (CAF), which distanced itself from his interest.
