Recall that both Orolu and Ifelodun Local Governments’ football clubs have qualified to the knockout stage of the competition from Ila and Ilesha centres respectively.
Reacting to the unbeaten run of Orolu FC, Hon. Adekunle Benson attributed the sterling performance to courageous efforts of the management, coaching crew and players and enjoined them to keep the ball rolling to win the tournament for his Council.
“I am happy for Orolu FC to be the first team to reach the knockout round. This shows unity and determination by the management, technical crew and players. Orolu FC is not a pushover in any football competition in Osun and beyond and I am very sure that all other teams will be afraid to face us’, stated Hon. Benson.

They revealed that the winning mentality of the boys is hinged on the support of Hon. Benson’s led administration.
On the other hand, Ifelodun North Council Chairman, Hon. Adeniyi Olaniyan in his submission bragged that there is no team that can withstand the firepower of Ifelodun FC in the competition, saying they are a team to beat.
“If you compare results of Ifelodun FC with those of other teams since the beginning of the competition, you will know that we are the best. We have¬† despatched big teams like Olorunda and Osogbo FC out of the competition and caged Isokan FC. Believe me, this trophy is coming to Ikirun next month,” bragged Hon. Olaniyan.
Coach Zakariyau Lawal of Ifelodun FC in his reaction said “for us at Ifelodun FC, we fear no team and its is not over until it is over.”
