Nigeria’s foremost secondary school/football  academy and  national  Principal’s  Cup title holders, FOSLA Academy Karshi- Abuja ‘ are opening up to Nigerians , interested groups and organisations to  partner  with them  to  meet up with their academic and other commitments.

Proprietor and founder of the school, Alhaji Sani Lulu Abdullahi  disclosed this  at the presentation of a white paper on the restructuring  of the school and the FOSLA Group as a whole by the  committee set up for this purpose last   September  under the leadership of a renowned administrator, Alhaji Abdullahi A. Ndanusa.     At a meeting of the school’s stakeholders  in Abuja  on Saturday September 28,Alhaji Sani Lulu ,a former president of  Nigerian Football Federation[NFF] said the ambitious expansion programmes  of the school established 12 years ago,  under a challenging economy have made it expedient to call on  Nigerians to team up with him to ensure that the FOSLA dream is sustained and taken to a greater height . Towards this end, about N10b  will be required to complete   some projects being undertaken by the school like the  ultra modern stadium’ hostels, farms, among others  to make the institution  live up to its lofty national and international standard and reputation. As part of the restructuring of the Academy, school fees will be reviewed  from N735,,000.00 to N950,000..00 per per annum to cater for  inflation and market prices.

Alhaji Lulu added that consultants will be appointed to work out modalities for the restructuring of not only the Academy but the FOSLA Football Club as well as Inikpi Security all in the FOSLA Group. Under the restructuring announced by the former NFF president, FOSLA will partner  with international and reputable  clubs or agents  for the marketing of FOSLA’s outstanding footballers.

“With this I am throwing FOSLA to the more than 200 million Nigerians to partner with me.It is now a Nigerian project, not only mine” he added.

Earlier, Chairman of the Restructuring Committee, Alhaji Abdullahi Ndanusa  commended the FOSLA  proprietor for steering the affairs of the school in the past 12 years, adding that “there is room for improvement, just like  in every human endeavor.” He said with their recommendation, FOSLA Academy will be on the world map with the passage of time.

Director of Sports, Federal Capital Territory, Mr Lukas Istafanus  hailed Alhaji Lulu for his tireless efforts in nurturing the project, and called on well-meaning Nigerians to key into the project by partnering with FOSLA to make it a PAN Nigerian project.

“FOSLA is now a property of all Nigerians” the Director of Sports declared.
