Chris Emeruwa, PhD, Nigerian football administration maestro, Confederation of African Football, (CAF), Head Safety and Security Department, a top FIFA official and the ‘incoming NFF President’ has expressed his desire to see the restoration of heroism in local Nigerian communities by ‘playing up’ the Ejiro Bravery Fund to a record amount of N1 Million Naira at the end of Wednesday in Abuja.
Dr Emeruwa’s striking intervention in support of the CASER Fundraiser followed the brave dexterity of Ejiro Otarigho, the now-famous burning tanker driver who risked his life to save thousands of people in Agbarho, near Warri in Delta State of Nigeria, when he drove a fully loaded petrol tanker that caught fire in a densely populated area and removed it to the riverside to avoid disaster.

Dr Emeruwa, a debonair expatriate carries on his global career as a football administrator with a high degree of mathematical accuracy with an intellectual approach akin to that of a Nobel prize winner for chemistry. He has recently declared his intention to contest to become the next president of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF). lawtimes.ng has pledged its full support to his ambition and fondly addresses him as the ‘incoming NFF President’
