The commitment to football development from the grassroots by the Elema of Warri Kingdom Chief Emmanuel Uduaghan may not go without recognition as the National Association of Nigerian Professional Footballers (NANPF)  has commended him for the gestures that have contributed immensely to Nigerian football.

Speaking with the sporting media the Auditor of NANPF and Ex-international Chikelue Iloenyosi said the contributions of the Warri Kingdom High Chief to football is unprecedented.

He noted that the Association has invited him to extend the gesture to its members particularly the ex-international players who are facing tough time after serving their father land.

Iloenyosi noted further that the Chief who is next to the Olu of Warri Kingdom has through his silent philanthropy affected the lives of many families through the engagement of the youth but called on him to also beam his searchlight on the former players who are facing serious life challenges.

“We laud the commitment of the Elema of Warri Kingdom Chief Emmanuel Uduaghan in football development. He is silently affecting lives positively and we in NANPF believe his find gesture should be encouraged that is why we are inviting him to our association to render help to some of our members who facing challenges.”

Iloenyosi who doubles as SA Security to the NFF President Amaju Pinnick noted that when the present Executives of NANPF led by the country’s former wing wizard Tijani Babangida came on board they promised to make the welfare of their members a priority and added that partnership with the Elema of Warri Kingdom will definitely assist the association to realise it.
