“I want to commend the members of Rivers United for the impressive victory over Enugu Rangers.

“This is indeed a job well done.

“For them to have defeated the current league leaders, it shows that they know what the task ahead is all about,” Governor Wike said.

While wishing the team more success, the Governor promised to offset the balance of financial entitlements owed them by the former administration in Rivers State.
