Dan Arewa as he is fondly called by his fans, has been a strong pillar in Nigeria football. The FA chairman of Katsina United has effortlessly supported the growth of Nigeria football with cash, his connections and definitely with kind. He bought 5,000 tickets for the match against Black Stars in Abuja, because of his love for Nigeria football.
Having been in the system for over 2 decades and as a former technical committee member of NFF, Alhaji Balele has studied the system and understands the way it works and how Nigeria football can be great again.
Katsina United’s FA Chairman’s support and contribution to Nigeria can never be undermined, and with a solid pillar like Balele, one can be sure that the success to be achieved in Nigeria football is unlimited.
