Anambra state government has thrown its full weight behind the title ambitions of Rangers International with provision of over twenty buses to convey fans to Asaba to cheer the club to victory against Kano Pillars F.C in the final match of the AITEO Cup.
This much was revealed by the Special Assistant to the governor on Political Matters, Honourable Chika Nzelu, in a chat in Enugu.
Nzelu, the two-time national chairman of Rangers International Supporters club said that the club was not just a football club but also a way of life and religion for the Ibo extraction in the country.
“After our triumph in 2016 at the NPFL after a long wait, we celebrated a lot and with the victory over Nasarawa United in Kano at the semi-final stage, I believe the stage is set for another celebration.
My boss, H.E, Governor Willy Obiano is already making plans to ensure that buses are made available to take fans from Awka and Onitsha and other parts of the state to Asaba to cheer Rangers to victory.
Our governor is an ardent supporter of Rangers and there is great opportunity for him to watch the match live with members of his cabinet,” stated Nzelu.
