The Chairman of Abubakar Bukola Saraki (ABS) Ilorin FC, Seni Saraki, has initiated a 12-man Committee to organise a U-13 football competition out of appreciation for late Super Eagles striker Rasheed Yekini.
Saraki while initiating the committee said one of the terms of reference of the board of trustees is to deliver another future striker like the late Rasheed Yekini in Irra Community, where the late goal poacher hailed from.
Dr Bukola Saraki, had guaranteed a year ago to skim a U-13 soccer competition through ABS FC where another late Yekini can be discovered.
“We are committed to youth development through football.
“We want to use this opportunity to encourage young ones from Irra Community as its environs to play football.
“We want not only discover these lads but we also assist them and nurture them to stardom via our youth team and the main team too” Saraki said.
