16 November 2015, 16:05Israel Ojoko

Lagos - While players, coaching staff and fans were in cloud nine celebrating the club’s 7th Nigerian Premier League title victory on Sunday, Felix Anyasi-Agwu was granting interview to announce he is stepping down as chairman of the newly crowned champions Enyimba.

Anyasi-Agwu said intense pressure from ‘the top’ as well as health grounds are the reasons behind his throwing in the towel.

The chairman of the NFF technical committee, said he was being attacked by 'powers too strong for him, and those he never expected will turn against him'.

“The pressure is on me to quit, I have done so much for this club over the years and I don’t think I can hold on any more. I also have to consider my health,” he told journalist in Lagos after their goalless draw against Sunshine Stars which meant nothing to them as they have already won the league with one game to spare.

During his 16 years at the People’s Elephant, Enyimba won all their major honours, including two CAF Champions League and seven league titles.

The 2014/15 Nigeria Professional Football League ended on Sunday, and Enyimba will represent Nigeria in the 2016 CAF Champions League.
