"Following reports of the resignation of our club Chairman Felix Anyansi Agwu, we wish to set the record straight and declare that Felix Anyansi Agwu remains Chairman of Enyimba Football Club.

"Chief Felix Anyansi Agwu has served our club with remarkable selflessness and unbending will. By any measure, he has transformed Enyimba Football Club and our rich and proud history and achievements will forever be linked to his service," the statement read in part.

"Our recent success as Champions of Nigeria for the seventh time is further proof of his dedication and commitment to our continued success.

"Felix Anyansi Agwu wants the best for Enyimba, always.

"It is this desire for the continued success of our club that has led him to express grave concerns over certain factors. Factors that if left unaddressed, would undermine his abilities to carry on his job effectively and take us to greater heights.

"Unfortunately, these statements have been misinterpreted as an act of resignation.

"He remains Chairman of Enyimba Football Club and would always strive for the development of our club and the sport," the statement concluded.
