” What I will want to hear next of the Super Eagles Supporters Club is that we have Chapters all over the 36 States and the Chapters should be supporting football at those level.
We should also have Chapters in local government because we have our local teams there, the president should put this in his agenda on how he is going to expand”.

If there is anything I can do to talk to anybody who can assist, engage the private sector to support we will always do that but let us make the Super Eagles Supporters Club a National Organisation because it is peculiar, you need the patirotism, Nationalism to be a member.
I saw them in Russia I could not believe it, I mean Government was not having enough money to support them but they were able to raise funds, all I did was to assist them when they were having problems with visa and how to get the travel documents”.
