A letter signed by the NFF Chairman of Chairmen, Mallam Ibrahim Musa Gusau, made available to The Guardian yesterday revealed that the duo would be in Asaba tomorrow for the ‘peace' meeting scheduled to hold at the Patrick Okpomo Football House.

The letter called on the Delta State Football Association Executive Board, Delta State Football Association Congress and the entire football stakeholders in the state to converge at the venue.

Fuludu, who has been on an acting capacity since Okocha left, feels he has what it takes to turn Delta State football around for good.

Ikpeba, on the other hand, feels he is the right man for the job, having served as a member of the State FA for some years now.

Some stakeholders believe that the position of Delta FA chairman should be given to someone who is resident in the state since the era of ‘Okocha calling the shots from Lagos' did not take Delta football anywhere.
