Rolly FC Donates Food Items To Referees, Club Officials, Police And Others

Rolly Football Club of Benin City have made a sizable donation to help members of Edo State Football Referee Council, Members of EDPA Estate Ugbowo Police Station, S&T Barracks, Isihor, Coaches and Management Staff of the Rolly FC during the COVID-19 lockdown.

With many people facing uncertainty due to the coronavirus pandemic, the club chairman, Mr Roland Inonojie, in his own little way decided to assist in cushioning the effect of the Corona Virus Pandemic.

In a statement by the Club Media Officer and Marketing Director, Mr Fred Newton Erhunmwunse, the club has always been committed to supporting the communities, the players, coaches and management staff of the football club that will make their debut in the Nationwide Division One League as soon as football hostilities resume.

Responding on behalf of Edo State Referees Association, the Chairman, Mr Johnbull Okundolor, while receiving the food items thanked the Chairman of Rolly FC for identifying with the Edo State men of the whistle at this time of COVID-19, especially when all the referees are locked down in their various homes without any football engagement.

He further declared that the food items are the first palliative materials the Edo State Football Referees council is receiving since the lockdown was implemented by the Edo State Government.

On his part, the DPO EDPA Estate Police station, CSP Salidu Tafida, thanked the Chairman and Management of Rolly FC for the humanitarian service and support to the Estate Police Command at this time when the economy is uncertain and for making these possible because so many families are in need this period.

In his remarks the S&T Barracks Command Officer, Major Okeke Mathias, applauded the Chairman and Management of the club for the donation of the food items and promised to continue his support to the club when they begin their league matches at the S&T Barracks football field.

He also stated that everyone should abide by the government guidelines of keeping social distances, using face masks whenever they go out, washing of hands regularly and using hand sanitizers.

The Club Secretary, Mr Kenneth Ugbodaga, on behalf of the management team thanked the Chairman for the show of love and support given to everyone in the club who received their food items at the Club Secretariat after the tour. He prayed that God Almighty will keep and protect him and his lovely family.
