Amosun reassures Gateway United of government support
Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, has reassured the management, players and technical crew of Gateway United Football Club of the state government and his personal support in their quest to gain promotion to the elite Glo Premier League next season.
Amosun reiterated his assurance while reacting to Gateway United’s first victory at the ongoing 2014/2015 Nigeria National League when they beat Akwa United of b Uyo 2-1 at the weekend.
Amosun, who praised the team for their recent good form after their early setback, which has seen them drawing in Benin with Bendel United and beating Akwa United, urged them to continue their winning streak to gain promotion at the end of the season.
He reasoned that Gateway has stayed too long in the lower division and promised to encourage them by promptly paying their wages and bonuses.
The governor, who gave the team N1 million for each match won last season, said more were in the offing if the team continued to win its matches and eventually gain promotion to elite Glo Premier League.
