Former Super Eagles’ midfielder, Seyi Olofinjana is one of the proofs for one adage that says “It’s only destiny that knows what anyone will do to be successful in life.”
Olofinjana graduated from Chemical Engineering in LAUTECH and became a world class footballer and Wolverhampton legend.

Mouthpiece NGR understands that when this legend was in LAUTECH, he was part of the players that represented LAUTECH at different competition and played for school teams.
While in school, he lived in stadium area and also played for stadium boys, Masifa United respectively before sighted by Crown FC.
Today, he’s a legend and will forever be loved by everyone. Anyone who have his contact should kindly tell him that I miss him and also appreciate the day he gave me Ragolis water he drank after featuring in a match against a visiting team, Prime FC, Osogbo.
The match ended 2:0 in favor of home’s side. It was a memorable day.
It would be nice to meet with him once again— Oyedeji Ahmed is a LAUTECH graduate,
