Osondu is a football intermediary duly registered with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) under the Federation of International Football Associations(FIFA) statutes and also a prominent member of the Football Intermediaries Association of Nigeria (FIAN). He is also a member, Nigerian Institute of Chartered Arbitrators (NICArb) and regularly applies these competencies to his sports law practice.
He is an ardent believer that the lack of an effective football governance framework in Nigeria makes the industry unattractive to foreign and local investors.
