Anambra State born human capital developer Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah who was at Agege township stadium Lagos yesterday where FC Ifeanyi Ubah played against MFM and lost with a goal to nil (0-1) as MFM escaped relegation thanked the fans for their commitment all through the season ,even as he went on to celebrate FC Ifeanyi Ubah team for finishing the season 4th on the log after just two years of the club's existence .
According to the President of Capital Oil and Gas,
"I must not fail to appreciate our fans for believing in this club .Our fans have shown so much commitment and passion and I stand to salute them all. The commitment of our fans was so intensified that some of them had to travel all the way from East to Lagos at their expense in order to come and watch Anambra Warriors ..." He said .
The man behind the ongoing $300million Games village in Anambra State also appreciates the players for their efforts that saw the club finish 4th on the log while also qualifying for Federations Cup finals to be played against Enyimba or Nasarawa FC.
" The point is that even when we lost today(yesterday )'s match , I still appreciate our players .Their fighting spirit was well documented. We all should now focus on Federations Cup finals which the team has against all odds qualified .
It is of note that Anambra Warriors is one of the four privately owned teams in 2015/2016 NPFL season that just ended today .
" I thank God for his mercy and guidance all the season .Imagine our team, supporters, etc gravitating the nooks and crannies of this country throughout the season without any road accident. It can only be God and may His name alone be praised "Ubah submits.
" let it be known that our team which just barely two years in NPFL was one of the four teams that was in the title race to the very end as the race charged to a tilt. It shows that hard work pays ..."
Dr Ifeanyi Ubah who also praised the MFM team and its coaching crew for surviving relegation saying that God did not want them to go down because we had clear cut chances which could have resulted into goals and subsequently sent the team to relegation while we join the continental elite.
According to the man behind the bilateral deal between an English Premier League Club (West Ham United) and Nigerian Professional Football League club (FC Ifeanyi Ubah) ,
" I congratulate MFM for surviving relegation through this match. The boys showed that determination can guarantee result. To me , it seems God didn't want them to go down because our team had chances that could have killed off the match and sent them into relegation even as we join continental elite"
Dr Ifeanyi Ubah later met with the players and supporters where he took time to encourage them for coming this far urging them to remain focused .
Dr Ifeanyi Ubah who is known for celebrating success of others, also went on to salute the three teams that clinched the continental tickets especially Rangers that won the title. In his congratulatory message released yesterday, it reads :
"Congratulations to Rangers Int'l FC on a thoroughly deserved title.
Your triumph is a product of hunger & determination.
I also wish to congratulate Rivers Utd & Wikki Tourist for clinching the continental tickets. It was a keen contest which made FC Ifeanyi Ubah better.
What an exciting #NPFLFinalDay!
Thank you." He said
Note : Winning FA Cup will still send FC Ifeanyi Ubah to Continental .All eyes now on FC cup finals .
