Green re-elected Rivers FA chairman


Chris Green, a member of the board of the Nigeria Football Federation, was on Thursday re-elected as the Chairman of the Rivers Football Association.

In the election conducted on Thursday by Ibrahim Gusau, a representative of the NFF, Mr. Green scored 14 votes to beat China Acheru, media officer of Dolphins FC, who had two votes.

Mr. Green said he would do better than he did before.

“To me, the bar is raised and I need to get to where I want to get and carry Rivers people along,” he said. “The institutions have benefitted from me in Rivers State. I will not relent and I will make sure that they benefit more from me.”

Mr. Green said the association would continue to host the Governor’s Cup, Port Harcourt City football tournament and other sponsored competitions.

He said the association would use such tournaments for talent hunt and expose such talents to national and international meets.
