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.
