Wike praised for Rivers Angels’ glory

Rivers Angels’ victory at the recent Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) Super Six has been linked to the State Government’s commitment to sports, according to the Rivers Sports Commissioner, Boma Iyaye.

Iyaye, during a chat with journalists at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium, Port Harcourt shortly after Rivers United beat Enyimba on Sunday, said that Governor Nyesom Wike encouraged the seventh-time league champions by giving every necessary support to the team.

He stressed further that the state could not have been better blessed than having three sports teams from Rivers representing Nigeria in one calendar year in different competitions.

Whilst Rivers United represented Nigeria in the CAF Confederation Cup, both Rivers Angels and Rivers Hoopers will be representing the country in CAF Women Champions League and African Basketball League Championship respectively.

The Rivers Sports boss was full of encomiums for Governor Nyesom Wike, saying he  has never wavered in his support for sports in the state as a tool for peace, development, and wealth creation.

He stressed: “The governor has been at the vanguard of the quest for the state deserving nothing but the best and he continues to manifest it in all spheres. He has proven to be a man of action and performance and we are indeed proud to be part of his success story in sports.

“As of today, Rivers is the only state in Nigeria that will produce three different teams to represent the country in different competitions in one calendar year. No state in Nigeria has achieved this feat and it goes to show that the governor is a man with the magic wand.   “Governor Nyesom Wike has clear intentions for Rivers people and it is manifesting by the day. He is not Power of Sports (POS) in Africa for nothing, we are blessed to have him at the helm of affairs in the state at this point in time.”
