Elder Alilionwu who acknowledged the huge support the team received from the state Governor Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu right from the first leg at Aba where the Governor physically met the team few hours before kickoff, prayed for and financially empowered them, described the gesture as the tonic that saw the team emerged victorious.

He enjoined them to ensure they continue to reciprocate the Governor’s gesture by honoring the CAF confederation cup title for their first time.
