Sportsville awardees are credible sports individuals, says NFSC boss

Rev. Samuel Ikpea

Chairman of Nigeria Football Supporters Club (NFSC), Rev. Sam Ikpea, has described those lined up for the maiden Sportsville award, which holds January 30 in Lagos, as credible people, who have done well for sports in the country.

Ikpea, in a statement made available to the media in Lagos, said the duo of Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State and Edo State deputy governor, Philip Shaibu, have ensured sports get adequate attention in their respective states.

“You can’t talk about sports in Nigeria without mentioning Rivers and Edo states,” Ikpea stated. He added, “NFF President Amaju Pinnick has been a blessing to Nigerian football. The endless lawsuits and bickering holding back football has been arrested”.

Dr. Larry Izamoje is a sterling example of humility in service and promotion of sports through his sports radio, BRILA FM.

Also, Dr. Rauf Ladipo has sacrificed everything for Nigerian football over the years. Anyansi Agwu of Enyimba has been hugely successful with Enyimba and Ebi Egbe, the CEO of Monimichelle, has on his part been on a mission to change the face of Nigerian football facilities. Sportsville has a line up of credible sports people it intends to honour,” Ikpea concluded.

The maiden award would hold at the Ibis Royal Hotel in Lagos. All the awardees have expressed joy over the award, with the Edo State deputy governor assuring that he will personally be in Lagos for the event.

The 10 awardees are, Wike, Shaibu, Pinnick, NBBF boss, Engr. Musa Kida, NOC president, Engr. Habu Gumel, NWFL Chairperson, Aisha Falode, Agwu, and Egbe, veteran sports journalist cum media icon, Izamoje and Ladipo.
