According to him’ I just want to pay back to the society for my background and life story, from no body to somebody, this year my club played for LNO(amateur league) in Port Harcourt, we came out first and played finals with Campos FC, Owerri.

Even though we lost, am still proud of my team, sorry I don’t called them team we answer family because I see each and every one of us as one hence it’s a family affair, even my Coach, Coach Obinna Yahaya, i call him, the best because he’s the best.
