Plateau United to operate from governor’s office
Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau State says that henceforth, his office would manage Plateau United FC for the 2017 Nigerian Professional League Season.
Lalong disclosed this yesterday after watching the training session of the club at the Rwang Pan Township Stadium in Jos. He told the club that his administration was prepared to tackle the challenges of the sport sector in the state.
“I just want to give you assurance that I am not worried about all the challenges that you are telling me about. I don’t want to come here this year without approving the file. Plateau United will be managed in my office so that I oversee everything. I oversee any challenge, I oversee if there is any confusion and I will know how to manage the confusion.”
He said that with the preparations on ground, he is confident that Plateau United will pick a ticket to represent Nigeria in a continental competition next season. “Continue to assure me that for the first half of the season, just do your best and see what I can do.”
“I just want to encourage you and also urge you to do us proud. If you do it, you will see what I will do. I assure you, I will put your club in place,” the Governor said
