Addressing staff of the club Monday morning in Uyo, Chairman of the club Elder Paul Bassey expressed gratitude, first to God Almighty for journey mercies and protection granted the team throughout the season and above all, for crucial victories the team enjoyed which helped the club to retain their place in the Premier league, made possible by relentless prayers of the clubโ€™s spiritual fathers.

Elder Bassey was particularly grateful to Governor Umo Eno for his massive support and trust in the team especially during the just concluded season which he described as the most turbulent season the club has experienced in the last eight years.

“His Excellency Governor Umo Eno should be appreciated for all the encouragement , moral and financial support we got during the season just ended.

“His Excellency’s love and support for the beautiful game has been massive and that support is evident even in his administration’s support for grassroot development as well as matches involving our senior national team the Super Eagles”.

The Club Boss also poured encomiums on his Principal the Honourable Commissioner for Youth Development and Sports Sir Monday Ebong Uko who he described as his โ€œpillar of strength โ€œ.

The Club Chairman did not forget to thank the club technical crew led by Coach Muhammed Babaganaru who despite the poor state of the club, was bold enough to take up the gauntlet and succeeded. The players, management and staff who he described as โ€œ committed, prayerful and hard working” were not left out of his speech.

He rounded off by promising to start in earnest, the process that will return the Promise Keepers to the Continent where they rightfully belong.
