Anyansi urges contractor to hasten work on Enyimba Stadium

The Chairman, Enyimba FC of Aba, Felix Anyansi-Agwu, has called on the contractor handling the Enyimba Stadium to hasten work on the project to enable the team to return to their base. Anyansi-Agwu, who made the call on Monday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Calabar, commended Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia for his untiring effort to see that the team returns to its base. He said: “I thank the governor of Abia who has been putting in a lot of efforts to mak sure that we return to Aba. “So, we are very grateful to him, I call on the contractor handling the job to hasten up construction so that the team returns to its fortress’’. According to him, Enyimba has not performed well this season because they are playing away from home. He added that their opponents had taken advantage of that in most of their matches. “We have not done so well this season due to a lot of factors. “We are playing in Calabar and this gives opposing teams the impetus to prepare, knowing that we are playing away from home and this has been an added advantage to them. “This is unlike when a team is coming to Aba, you are already one goal down before coming. “But here in Calabar, they feel it is a neutral ground. These are some of the difficult situations we find ourselves in,’’ Anyansi-Agwu said. He said that, as soon as the stadium was ready, Enyimba would return to Aba to continue with their exploits. “We are a team with pedigree and a lot of flash-points. We have never been into any tournament just for participation. “We always want to win a trophy and when you win a trophy then you can now talk of representing the country.’’
