Three-time former Secretary General of the Nigeria Football Association, P. O. C. Achebe is dead. The former scribe died last Saturday in Atlanta, USA where he was residing temporarily.
Achebe was one of only two Nigerians to have headed the secretariat of the former Nigeria as he was a man of integrity and class. May his soul rest in Peace.”
On his part, former Super Eagles coach and one time national team captain, Christian Chukwu was lost in words. “You don’t say that!” he exclaimed when asked for his reaction. “Achebe was one of the best secretary-generals we ever had.
Indeed, he was a good man. Oh my God, what a sad news,” Chukwu who said he was driving managed to say.
