The Abia Warriors Match Reader praised the Pastor Emeka Inyama led management for motivating the team at all times.
“Pastor Emeka Inyama is a man of his words. His management team have always ensured that the staff do lack anything.
“Welfare is an important aspect in football. He (Emeka Inyama) has done his possible best to ensure that the team is well taken care of and in good condition. I think most administrators should emulate his management style,” he concluded.
