… Appeals For More Government Support
The Chairman, Niger Tornadoes Management Committee, Hon. Adamu Aliyu Mohammed has showered encomiums on the Technical Crew and Players of the Ikon Allah Boys for an outstanding performance through out the just concluded 2021/2022 NPFL Season.
Hon. Adamu Aliyu said, inspite of inherent challenges, the team was able to weather the storm and pulled through, due largely to the commitment and resilience of the players, coupled with the Technical know-how of Abubakar Bala Mohammed, who stood firm in ensuring that the team retains her NPFL status.
The chairman took turn to thank his management members for their commitments, total support and co-operation through out the course of the NPFL season.
The Chairman deeply appreciated the Niger State Governments’ support, especially, the State Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Youth & Sports Development and specifically, the number one supporter of the team, Governor Abubakar Sani Bello, for his relentless and untiring support to the team since his assumption of office in 2015.
He used the medium to appeal for the immediate renovation of Bako Kontagora Stadium Minna, to enable the team play its home matches at home next football season and also pleaded for the release of Club Bus earlier pledged to the team by the Government and further requested for the purchase of Official Car to the Technical Adviser of the team in order to guarantee a smooth movement.
Hon. Adamu Aliyu equally extended gratitude to football stakeholders in the State, particularly, the Niger State Football Association, ably led by its Chairman and father of football in the State, Comrade Ahmed Yusuf Fresh, for his fatherly role and support to the team at all times.
He equally thanked the leadership of Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN) Niger State for their patience and support.
While acknowledging the warm support the team enjoyed from Kaduna fans during home matches, the Chairman reserved special commendation to the Clubs Supporters & Fans for always sticking behind the team.
The Chairman further appeals for calm and support from all and sundry as the team prepares for the season ending cup competition, the Aiteo Cup.
