Seasoned football administrator Mike Idoko has been named successor to Dominic Iorfa, who recently stepped down as Vice Chairman of Lobi Stars after 14 years in the saddle. Idoko’s appointment was announced on Wednesday by the Secretary to the Benue State Government, Targema Takema.

He is to work with Barnabas Imenger as team manager and Godwin Uwua head coach.

A Goal report said Imenger contested as vice chairman of the team, lost and retained his position as team manager.

Idoko is staging a comeback to football administration after he left Sunshine Stars where he served in various capacities before he was displaced by the current chairman of the Ondo State Football Agency (OSFA), Akin Akinbobola.

Lobi had Dominic Iorfa as Vice Chairman for over 14 years and under his administration, the club won a Federation Cup title in 2003 and lost in the final on three different occasions in 2005, 2012 and 2015. The club also placed third in the league in the 2012/2013 season which fetched them a CAF Confederation Cup ticket.
