New technical adviser of Edo Queens Football Club of Benin Moses Opuamowei Aduku, was on Friday unveiled by the State Deputy Governor Comrade Philip Shaibu, at the Conference hall of Government House Benin City.
Speaking during the ceremony, Shaibu, welcomed the new coach to Edo State saying that the State government is elated to have a high profile football manager like him in the State to help pilot the affairs of Edo Queens.
“We are very happy to have you, we are also very confident that you have the necessary tools to take Edo Queens to Eldorado. As you know Edo State is highly committed to Sports development especially in the areas of youth development.
“We have been following you, we are aware of your numerous achievements in football as a coach, so I personally gave a matching order to the Sports commission board to do everything they can to get a good and results oriented coach for Edo Queens FC. Now that you are here, I have no doubt in my mind that you and your team will deliver.
“We have targets, we want to win the NWFL League title, we also have our eyes on the Aiteo Cup and most importantly Edo Queens want to play in the Women’s Champions league and win.
“Here in Edo Queens if you do well you take the credit, again if you fail you and your technical crew will also take the blame. Feel free to come to us when you need us. Thank God you seasoned administrators in Sports Commission who are always there to provide the tools that will make you excel in this new task. So we wish you the best of luck.”
In his response the former Bayelsa Queens head coach thanked the State government for the opportunity given to him to work as coach of Edo Queens, stressing that success can only be achieved through hard work. He maintained that he has come to Edo Edo Queens to achieve results and also called for commitment, hard work and sacrifice, adding that without God nothing can be achieved.
“First and most, I want to thank God for given me the opportunity to be here in Edo State to be the coach of the envious Edo Queens FC. What actually motivated me coming to Edo Queens is the structure of the club. From afar, I see what the State government is doing; I see the structure of the club. In Nigeria today, no team go for an away match with flight but Edo Queens does. They do play all their home matches by 6pm under floodlights which I have being clamouring for in Nigeria.”
