“By way of educating people on what we want to achieve, you recall that under the regulations of the Nigeria Professional league, all clubs are supposed to have a youth football development league, to be part of the system.
We have partnership with La Liga for financial, technical and developmental programme, which has been very good, exceptional and supportive to us.
“We have achieved so much from the first edition in 2016 till date. We have achieved many milestones that everybody can be proud of.”
