President, Drogba, Eto’o to play at Ambode farewell match

The organising committee for the Governor Akinwunmi Ambode farewell football match has confirmed that former World Footballer of the Year and President of Liberia, George Weah, and notable world football legends, including Didier Drogba would play at the high profile game.
Ambode will be leaving office on May 29 after his bid to get a second term failed. However, the epoch-making match will come up on May 18 in Lagos.
The Chairman Organising Committee for ‘The Match’, Nigerian ex-international, Wahidi Akanni, in a statement in Lagos yesterday, disclosed that the game was aimed at giving Mr Ambode a befitting farewell.
“Governor Ambode has served Lagos meritoriously for four years, so the match will be played at the newly remodelled Onikan Stadium on May 18, which is 11days to his final handover on May 29.
“Aside from George Weah and Drogba, other African legends have signed up for the game between African Legends and Ex-Super Eagles’ stars.
“Others who will play on the side of the African legends are Michael Essien and Samuel Eto’O Fills,” Akanni said.
