The Managing Director of Warri Wolves, Davidson Owumi, has praised the sports-loving Governor of Delta State, Emmanuel Uduaghan, for coming to the rescue by bailing the team out after providing fund for the team to travel to Congo.
Apart from making available funds for the trip, the Governor equally released money to offset part of the salary being owned the players and that really gladdened the heart of the players who have vowed to play their heart out in Congo today as they confront Entancheite in the second leg of the CAF Confederation Cup tie.
The first leg had ended 2-1 in Wolves’ favour two weeks ago in Warri.
According to Owumi, the Governor deserves kudos for coming to bail the team out: “We are very grateful to Gov. Emmanuel Uduaghan for bailing us out by providing us funds for the trip and he also made available money to pay part of the salary being owed the players.
“This has gone a long way to motivate the boys and one can see the way they are behaving now. The boys have made up their mind to play their heart out and I pray that we qualify and dedicate the victory to the Governor once again,” said Owumi.
Meanwhile, the team which left Nigeria on Wednesday afternoon via Asky Airline through Lome arrived Kinshasha around 8pm and have since settled down.
