About Me

In Owerri, the name of Uche Ejimofor is synonymous with football since the 1980s. A former footballer who became a journalist and then a club administrator, Ejimofor is famous for surviving a plane crash with Iwuanyanwu Nationale in 1994 that left two players dead and others maimed.

He wears it proudly as a badge of honour.image "No team administrator has won five national titles and if they do, they haven’t survived a plane crash," Ejimofor proudly told Goal in Owerri.

It was such resolve that helped him to sign former Nigeria star Nwankwo Kanu to his first professional contract in 1992.image Ejimofor had heard about the impressive talent making heads turn on the local school football circuit in Owerri. So he went to watch him play and immediately knew there was something in the young boy.
