Maigari appplauds Pillars, Enyimba

President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Alhaji Aminu Maigari has congratulated Nigeria’s two representatives in this year’s CAF Champions League, Kano Pillars and Enyimba FC for their audacious show on the road at the weekend.


Enyimba, champions of the competition in 2003 and 2004, turned back Michel de Ouenze of Congo by the odd goal in Brazzaville to stand a bright chance of reaching the first round proper of the competition.

In Monrovia, Kano Pillars, semi finalists in last year’s competition, during which they famously eliminated Al Ahly FC of Egypt, prevailed 2-1 over Mighty Barolle of Liberia and need the minimum job to accomplish to reach the first round after next week’s return leg at the Sani Abacha Stadium.
