Its a known fact that the league itself has been suffering from lack of sponsorships, despite all efforts by those managing the affairs of the league, many clubs survives or remain in the league because of their passion for the game. Lack of sponsorships causes delayed and never allowed the standard of the league to grow.
On the easy aspects, I will say my gender has being of great help. And being a lady makes it easy to understand a lady problem and how to approached it. I’m a very simple though strict and sincere when it comes to business.
More so, working with a chairman that understand football and how to manage players, it has been really helpful.
Abdul Sule is a blessing to the game of football and I’m happy and privileged to be working with him.”
