Mbah Congratulates Rangers For Winning NPFL Title

Governor of Enugu State, Peter Mbah has congratulated the Rangers International Football Club of Enugu for winning the 2023/24 Nigeria Premier Football League, NPFL, title.
Reacting to the victory, Governor Mbah said the Rangers title win and the display on the pitch were clear exciting reenactment of the greatness that  Enugu State was known for and restated his government’s plans to commit more resources towards sports development.
He said the state will continue on that trajectory by making sure that there is a superb reward system that would motivate the players to go all out to bring home the coveted CAF champions cup to the state.

A 33rd-minute goal by Kenechukwu Agu and 65th-minute goal by Chidiebere Nwobodo handed the Fidelis Ilechukwu-tutored lads their eighth league title and their second since 2016.
Their closest rivals, Remo Stars and Enyimba Football Club lost their match-day 37 fixtures 1-2 each against Sunshine Stars and Sporting Lagos leaving the Flying Antelopes with an insurmountable 67-point lead with a game to go.

“I can tell you that the government and people of Enugu State are very excited. What we have witnessed here this evening is the reenactment of the greatness that Enugu is known for.

“Part of what I said to the players before the match started was that they had the weight of history on their shoulders because they were walking the path legends had walked and that it was incumbent on them to deliver.

“I’m so excited again that this has happened.

“Indeed, our tomorrow is here. It is again part of connecting the dots in the sports sector. As you already know, we want to be number one in everything we do.


“So, we have zero tolerance for failure or mediocrity and our work ethic is impeccable,” Mbah said.

He said the state would continue on that trajectory, making sure that they had a good reward system, motivating the players to go all out and bring back the trophy.
