Celebrating Isaac Our Man Danladi On His Special Day
By Adewale Ajayi
The history of Nigeria football will not be complete without a mention of this icon of our time, Isaac Fineboy Danladi. A man of many parts, an administrator with swagger and style, the flamboyant and always smiling chairman of the now famous club owners association of Nigeria stands out among his peers as one of the very best football administrator to come out of Africa.
A Christian at heart but a friend to all, this man has achieved so much in a short time to be inducted into the NSM HALL OF FAME.
Today as a mark of honour, to a distinguish personality join me, as i make an ACRONYM out of the name D-A-N-L-A-D-I on his birthday. Happy birthday boss.
D. Dogged Dancing Danladi – He is dogged, he is a fighter, and resilent one at that. He has fought his way to the very top. He is a Christian but he has thrived in a predominantly muslim society because of his good heart. The people of Lafia have embraced him for his brilliance. He has made Nasarawa united a model in the NPFL no wonder the executive governor of the state reinstated him, just few months after leaving the club. If you are talking of a man who understands the terrain very well, mention Isaac Danladi
A. Amiable And Ambitious – He was primed to become the next commissioner of sports in Nasarawa state following his many successes with Nasarawa united but fate ruled otherwise. He has the potentials to emerge as the next governor of the state because he is a man loved by many. From Lafia to Akwanga, Keffi and beyond, Isaac Danladi is a song, sang by both the young and the old. He is a jolly good fella l.
N. Nice And Neat – Isaac Danladi is the neatest club chairman around presently. He dresses to kill. He is always on point whenever he moves out. He has no rival on his day
L. Lepa Ladies Love Isaac.
He doesn’t look for them, they are always hunting for him. From Lagos to Uyo, Abuja to Lafia, Isaac Danladi has always caught their attention. His phone is always ringing but he is a man of class. He hardly falls to their pranks. A special breed.
A. Astute Administrator
In 6 years, he has qualified modest club, Nasarawa united to play in the CAF Confederation cup, he has taken them to the semi final of the FA Cup and was on the brink of a champions league qualification at some point. He has combed the state for the best talents and have given them a chance to play for Nasarawa united fc. He discovered a Lafia born rookie called Sunusi Ibrahim and nutured him to become the best footballer in the local league after he emerged the highest goal scorer of the NPFL.
D. Daring… He doesn’t take No for an answer, he is not afraid to speak his mind. He dares the gods and waits for the consequences. He is not weak, Danladi is a fighter.
I. Ingenuous, Industrious And Intelligent. He packs them all. Isaac Danladi is an embodiment of knowledge and excellence. He has come of age and has shown that he has got the qualities to become the next NFF president. He is a man destined for the very top.
Wishing you the very best on your birthday.
