2019 Nigeria Cup donates to charity, funds open-heart surgery
As a way of giving back to the society, especially the less-privileged one, the organisers of 2019 Nigeria Cup has decided to donate to charity and fund the open heart surgery of a Nigerian.
Chairman, 2019 Nigeria Cup Organising Committee, Uwem Udoh, who disclosed this during the week, explained that the gesture was in line with the committee’s decision to give back to the society.
“One of the things we decide to do this year is to give back to the society, be our brothers keeper and extend a hand of fellowship to those in need. A portion of money raised will be used for Charity works,” Udoh said.
Apart from the charity initiative, the committee will also honour the founding fathers of the Nigeria Cup and those who nurtured the Cup at the its teething stage. Udoh, who said he appreciates the support he has gotten from members of the Club and corporate organisations, added that notable Nigerians like John Momoh,
Tunde Afolabi, Layi Fatona and Soji Awogbade, will be honoured, while late Tony Awa and Tunji Ogunkanmi will also be remembered for the contribution to Nigeria Cup at the early stage.
