Rivers State Governor Nysom Wike has hailed the resilient spirit of players, coaches and management of Rivers United FC as the team tops the just concluded Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season.

 The team beat all and took home the prestigious first prize to the sporting Governor of the State who has served as beacon of hope for the team since he assumed office seven years plus now.

It would be recalled that the Pride of Rivers State has left nobody in doubt on their readiness to make bold and decisive statement on the just concluded season, thereby justifying the heavy investment on them by the State Government.

 However, notwithstanding the last game of the season defeat by Nasarawa United FC aka the Solid Miners, the coach Stanley Eguma tutored lads haven won 21 matches, lost 8 and recorded 71 points, thereby topped the table leaving their closest Plateau United FC by ten points behind.

 Not hiding his enthusiasm the hard working Governor of the State, Ezenwo Nyesom Wike CON, has long expressed his unquenchable joy with Pride of Rivers State fate as he congratulates them on their hard earned success in this season’s NPFL believing that the journey ahead is still huge, therefore all hands must continue to be on deck and eyes on the ball as the ultimate CAF Champions League diadem is where all eyes must stay focus on. He hopes that they continue in their trail of success in their next operation.

  He pledges the continued and unparallel support of the government in their future endeavours, Governor Wike reassures.
