He said Enyimba’s qualification for the money spinning group
stage of the continent’s elite club competition came as a result of hardwork, determination
and resilience and urged them to continue with the same spirit to enable them
bring back the trophy which they won back-to-back in 2003 and 2004, to Nigeria.
According to Inyama, winning the trophy at this time will
also act as a pay back to the Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, who, he

sponsorship and support not only to Enyimba International football club but
also to all other sports organizations in the State.
