“I admire the way Barrister Paul Edeh is going with the team and no wonder they club keep improving year by year. We will continue to be ambitious and keep the legacy and policy of the team.

“We have big plans for the team and I think the players we have now are good enough to get us a promotion ticket to the Premiership, but above that, we want to build an environment where players from Benue and the northern part of the country can fulfill their dreams of playing abroad, and no doubt, we shall be giving them various opportunities to achieve that.
