(b)        Perception of Nigerian Referees as Regards issues and Trends in Officiating.

Current Research

(a)        An Evaluation of Nigeria’s Soccer Programmes and Programming.

I am currently evaluating the processes involved in the organization of soccer programmes in the country.  The work is been carried out in line with availability, adequacy and accessibility of the various variables needed for an effective programming.  Emphasis is also on whether the programmes actually meet the desired objectives.

(b)        The offside rule as amended by FIFA

The offside rule has always been difficult to understand by both the players involved in the game and spectators.  The study will vividly examine the amendment clause of the offside rule and recommend refresher courses for both the players and the referees with the view to understanding the rule better and its applicability during the game.
