‘’Because of my passion for Nigeria football, I sold some of my properties to help Nigerian fans to Egypt to support the Super Eagles at the 2019 AFCON, it was I big sacrifice I never regretted even though we didn’t win the title ‘’ he said.
He also stated that he is the first mascot of Nigeria football which is called is effigy.
“It is not an easy task. I went through the rank and file. I was the first mascot of Nigeria football which is called is effigy. I will stand for many hours because of my passion for football.”
Speaking further, he revealed that the group under his leadership is setting up a musical group.
“We are putting up a musical school and it is still in the process. It is not easy to fund the club locally and how much more on the international stage. I’m doing this single-handedly as it is not a simple task for me.
“We are trending and it is because of what we have done and doing. It is selfless service. We are trying hard to put that school in place and by next year, we will unveil the Authentic Nigeria football supporters’ club musical school”.
“The NFF is neutral and doing their best to take us along in various events. The Authentic Football Supporters Club is the only club that can give support and deliver results to international standards,” he declared.
The ANFSC boss, however, noted that the failure of the football teams to qualify for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games will not affect the activities of the club.
“The truth is that it is not a good one for the football house in general. Authentic Nigeria football supporters club is beyond going to stadium and clap. “We empower youths and there are lots of activities we do. In as much as we are not going to the Olympics, it does not stop the programs of the club” he concluded.
