Chinedu Offor

Here’s a Sonny Side of Sports salute for my longtime VOA colleague Chinedu Offor, who has left the Voice of America and returned to Nigeria to take a new job as spokesman for the Imo State governor.

I’ll miss Chinedu’s sporty banter during my show, especially when he would “sing the Blues” for “The Blues” of Chelsea, his favorite football club.

You can check out Chinedu “singing the Blues” and wearing his Chelsea FC jersey in this video.

Chinedu is an avid soccer fan and I’m sure when he’s not doing official business in Nigeria he’ll be perusing the sports pages for the latest tidbits about Chelsea and “The Super Eagles,” Nigeria’s national football team.

Best of luck to Chinedu in his new job.

    Best wishes to Chinedu in his new job. The whole Zimbabwe service will surely miss him. Weekends will never be the same, will miss arguing about our favorite teams – his Chelsea and my Arsenal – when the new season begins.

    May the good Lord continue to guide you and your family. Best of luck.

    Sonny, so difficult to know Chinedu is leaving VOA but am so happy he is coming to work in our state Imo. He has garnered so much experience and it’s high time he gave back to our young state. I just hope, Sonny, you come visiting one day and all of us including your Fanatical Fan will be there to meet you. Cheers

    Goodday Sonny. Its incredible that Chinedu had left the VOA, but it’s a good one because he need to respond to the service of his country Nigeria. I wish him welcome and happy staying.
