Wife of the Edo State Governor, Betsy Obaseki, has urge the Edo Queens players to do all they can to win the Nigerian Women Football league next season after being provided all necessary amenities by the State government.
It can be recollected that Edo Queens last month unveiled its new home and away jersey and also a new logo but before then, the government provided the team a well conditioned and other facilities needed for the welfare of the players.
Speaking at a gathering on Thursday, Mrs. Obaseki urge the players and the Crew at large to fight really hard for the trophy as it will really show a sign of appreciation for the state government efforts.
“I also want to use this opportunity to charge Edo Queens FC to wake and do everything thing within their football prowess to see that they win laurels for the state. Because now that the state government has given them all they needed to excel, they must also play their own role to justify the good welfare packages being given to them by the state government because the only way to make government do more is to win medals.”
She also craved for support for the team. She call on the people of Edo state to organize the Edo State Women Football supporters group that will cheer the team up to victory in every match venue by next season.
“Looking at these crowds in this hall, I can see that men are more in numbers. And each time you watch football competitions the greater number of viewers that you see are men, so as our state women darling team prepares for the new NWFL season, I want the state government to form women football supporters group. Together with the wife of the deputy governor, we will be part of the supporters club”
Edo Queens finished in the second spot of Group B last Season with 10 points, 2 points behind Adamawa Queens but look forward to pick up a ticket for the Super 4 come next season.
