Governor Samuel Ortom has approved the provision of free buses to convey Lobi Stars Football Club supporters to Enugu on Saturday, 22nd December, 2018, for the return leg of the club’s CAF Champions League match against Gor Mahia FC of Kenya.
The decision of the Governor to mobilize massive support for Lobi Stars is to boost their morale so as to enable them overturn the 3-1 first leg defeat they suffered in Kenya.
He assures players and management of the club that the entire state stands behind them as they go into the encounter and expresses confidence in their ability to advance to the next round of the Champions League.
The Deputy Governor, Engineer Benson Abounu will lead the state delegation to Enugu for the match.
Governor Ortom calls on football fans in Enugu and neighbouring states to troop to the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium on Saturday as they did in the previous game, to cheer Lobi Stars to secure victory for the country.
