Uduaghan tasks Warri Wolves on battle of Ethiopia
Delta State Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan has urged players and officials of Warri Wolves to do everything possible to conquer their Ethiopian opponent, Dedebit FC, in this weekend’s CAF Confederations match.
Wolves won the first leg 2-0 at the Warri City Stadium to raise hope of qualification to the next round, having crashed out at this stage of the championship last year.
There were insinuations in some quarters yesterday that Wolves might end up the way of Dolphin FC of Port Harcourt, following alleged difficulties in raising money for the trip to Ethiopia.
But an official of Delta Sports Commission told The Guardian in a telephone chat yesterday that Governor Uduaghan had made money available for the club to honour the return leg match against Dedebit FC.
He said: “Uduaghan is a sports loving governor and there is no way he will allow such embarrassment to befall Warri Wolves, especially after the club won the first leg. In fact, the governor has sent words to the players and their officials to do everything possible to qualify for the next round of the competition. He wants Warri Wolves to win the trophy this time around.”
