Gov Orji Splashes Cash on Enyimba
Posted: Jan 17, 2013
Enyimba International of aba’s preparation for the 2012/2013 Premier League received a massive boost Monday when Abia State governor, Chief Theodore Orji approved funds for the payment of 50 percent of the players sign on fees just as the club has hit out at one of their players, Henry Uche who is adamant on quitting the six time League champions.
Chairman of Enyimba, Felix Anyansi-Agwu, disclosed this in an emotional address to players and officials at the club’s ground on Tuesday morning but did not reveal the exact amount.
Chief Anyansi revealed that for the first time, 50 per cent of sign-on fees for the team will be paid before the start of the season and expressed deep gratitude to the State Governor, Chief T. A. Orji, for making such a remarkable achievement possible.
“This is evidence of the Governor’s trust in the team,” Anyansi-Agwu said. “This is a proof that the Government of Abia State is solidly behind the team and a sign that things will be better than they ever were.
“We must now seize this opportunity to return the team to the top as a mark of appreciation, as a way of repaying the faith that the Governor has in the team. This is a historic point in our club and we must achieve the success to back it up.”
