Bendel Insurance NPFL return excites Pius Ikedia


Bendel Insurance is an historical club and is responsible for producing some top class talents that went on to make their mark in the National team.

Stars like Osaze Odemwingie, Ifeanyi Udeze, Julius Aghaowa and Pius Ikedia passed through the club early on and went on to have great careers.

Bendel Insurance recently gained promotion back to the Nigerian topflight league and even won their first game away at Akwa United last week.

However, the Club’s history has been a constant trough and crest; rocked with financial and administrative crisis over the years.

They had gone on a 10-year hiatus from the NPFL, returned in 2019 but were relegating that same year.

Speaking on the Club’s re-emergence, former winger Pius Ikedia, believes there’s reason for optimism now for all the fans.

“I am very happy for insurance over some years they were struggling, but with the government turning its focus back on the club, they are becoming one of the best teams in Nigeria today.

“A team like Bendel Insurance should be playing in the top flight, we will try to support and encourage them and hope they stay in the first division.”
