Plateau United media officer, Mr Albert Dakup, quoted the club’s General Manager, Mr Pius Henwan, as saying that the recess became necessary to give the team the deserved rest from the rigorous campaign that began since July 2019, while health authorities try to find ways to contain the COVID-19 pandemic.
