Barely one week after Governor Samuel Ortom promised to release funds for the payment of Lobi Club feeder team, he has fulfilled the promise.
Players of the feeder team led by their captain Tarhemen Tar had stormed Government House Makurdi and pleaded with Governor Samuel Ortom to released funds for their sundry allowances, salaries and match bonus as their league wind up.
The Governor assured them that the money will be release soon as he consider them as his own children .
But speaking to newsmen yesterday Vice chairman of the club Mike Idoko said the governor has out of magnanimity released funds for the payment all their entitlements.
Idoko commended Ortom for his prompt approval of the funds. He stated that despite paucity of funds his excellency has graciously approved funds for the feeder team and very soon they would be paid.
