Despite the dilemma in Delta State concerning the nullification of Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan’s election by a federal appeal court sitting in Benin City, Warri Wolves has proven that they can do better even with the political logjam in the state.
A brilliant performance last week saw the Warri side top the league table, and have vowed to keep the flag flying till the end of the season.
The club has proven that things would be better in the future. Inside The Premier league sought the view of Wolves to know the secret behind their success.
According to Timi Ebikagboro, Warri Wolves media officer, the recent top-of- the- tablE performance emanates from the fact that the players were told not to allow the happening in the state (politically) to affect their performance in the league and urged to better because normalcy will soon return to the state.
Ebikagboro said Delta State Sports Commission boss Pinnick Amaju, told the players to continue to give their best pending when things normalise.
“The reason is simple, the players rededicated themselves despite the fact that the money is not coming in. They have to make a name for themselves; the chairman has promised them that money will come that it will only take some time and that if they do not do well now they should not expect any dues when things stabilize or when money comes. The thing is that if government owes the only way is to give good result so that they can pay.
“As for the players, they have vowed to win at least ten matches. So in this regard, the players are doing their best to make sure things work well. I think that is what is keeping the club going,” he said. Wolves are yet to lose a game in the on-going season.
