Spread The News

KOGI United FC of Lokoja have confirmed their readiness to compete for honor and trophy in the upcoming Nigeria National League (NNL) season.
Chairman of the club, Abdul Sule, disclosed this in Lokoja after Kogi United completed the swapping of position with Bida Lions FC of Niger State to remain in the NNL.
Kogi United lost their status in the NNL last season after losing the appeal case against Adamawa United FC of Yola thus being relegated but have since exchanged status with the Niger state-based club who promoted to the NNL last season.
Abdul Sule said the move to remain in the second tier league of the country became necessary as Kogi United deserves to be in top flight in Nigeria football.
He added that the club would put all they’ve got to compete favourably in the new season as mistakes noticed in the previous season would be amended.
“We are back in the game, I can confirm to you that we will be in NNL next season after we did the deal to swap position with Bida Lions, begins Sule. We cannot afford to play in the lower Nationwide League One, this club is too big for that, what happened to us last season was unfortunate, it was painful but we’ve put that aside now as we’ve learnt our lessons, this time we want to face this season squarely and by the grace of God, we will challenge for success and glory,” the former Super Eagles defender said.
Sule however called on the management members, coaches, players, supporters, fans and well wishers of the club to renew their interest in the club by supporting them next season just as he called on the league organisers for improvement.
Meanwhile, players of Kogi United have been asked to resume for for next season on the 4th of January, 2016.
