….as Council Chairman pledges football development
The Ter u Kunav, His Royal Highness Chief Josephus Nyiyongu Achiaku on Monday 27th January, 2020 received in audience the leadership of the Vandeikya Local Government Football Council led by its chairman, Mr. Robert Terlumun Akpenpuun.
Akpenpuun who reeled out to the Ter Kunav the benefits of the beautiful game of football such as unity, peace, friendship, entertainment, joy, wealth creation, fame and social integration amongst others.
The chairman explained that Dochiss has agreed to sponsor the Kunav Football League (KFL) and that Gen. Dominic Oneya, former Military Administrator of Benue State has magnanimously accepted to sponsor the Principals Cup for all Secondary Schools in Vandeikya.
The chairman therefore appealed to the Ter Kunav to honour people who have contributed and are willing to contribute to the development of football in Vandeikya.
Responding, a visibly excited Ter Kunav said he was overwhelmed by the special visit and the passionate presentations made by the Local Council Football boss bordering on turning around the fortunes of the game in Kunavland.
Hear him: ” when you see something to doubt, you know and when you see the one to trust, you still know”
According to Ter Kunav, the chairman and his team had proved by their visit and presentations that they are passionate about taking football in Vandeikya to the next level.
While making reference to the emergence of Joseph Yobo, a former Super Eagles player, the highly respected Royal Father appreciated the chairman, Mr. Robert Akpenpuun and his team for having and showing great passion to help the cause of football and youth development in Kunavland.
He prayed that sooner than later, with the renewed zeal and drive of the leaders, Kunav youths will be in great leagues and in the Nigerian national teams.
Continuing, HRH Ter Kunav accepted and granted his royal blessing to all the competitions/programs of the Vandeikya Local Government Football Council for the year. He promised to appeal to Kunav sons and daughters at home and in the diaspora to support the Ter u Kunav while also pledging his support in individual and official capacity.
However, Chairman then presented gifts, including branded competition jerseys, water from one of the sponsors as well as other branded items to the Ter with photograph sessions ending the memorable visit.
