“This is a great opportunity because there are prizes to be won, and those who will perform excellently may be fortunate to be signed into bigger football teams in the Nigerian Premier League, and I really want them to participate in this event.”


“I saw the information about the tournament and I was interested in it, and even though there was no team for the youths of the clan, because of my passion, I quickly formed the Team Iduwini, paid the fee for the entire team and enrolled in the knockout tournament.”


“I am using this means to call on all sons of Iduwini Clan who can play football to come out and make sure we bring this cup to our clan, it will be our greatest joy if we win.”

“The tournament is just by the corner – this Saturday and Sunday, and like I said, it is designed in a way that exceptional players may be signed into professional teams in Nigeria. That’s why I am working closely with the organizers to ensure that players from Team Iduwini get a chance to advance their careers in football, since I’m also a footballer.”


“I am not desperate or in a hurry to prove that I am performing as Assistant Secretary of Iduwini Clan IYC, but since I got wind of the tournament, I had to look for a way to drag my clan people into it.”


“I may not have all the financial muscle to sponsor Team Iduwini, but I will grab every opportunity I see to promote them,” the statement added.
