Enugu State Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, has finally rewarded players, technical crew and management staff of Enugu Rangers for winning the 2015/2016 Nigeria Professional Football League title.
The team were crowned champions over two months ago.
The governor doled out N41.5 million to the Rangers team who ended the club’s 32-year drought in style, winning the Nigeria League title.
Aside the cash approved for the team, the governor also gave the players and their staff a plot of land each in a newly designed Rangers Estate in Enugu.
Gov. Ugwuanyi announced these long-awaited benefits during the reception organised for the team on Monday at the Michael Okpara Square in Enugu.
“We commend Rangers for reviving the famous Rangers spirit and making the club great again,” saluted Governor Ugwuanyi. “We dedicate this trophy to the almighty God.”
The Sultan of Sokoto, Saad Mohammed, an avid supporter of Rangers, having started his military career in Nsukka, was present at the reception at the Michael Okpara Square in Enugu.
The team will be hosted to a dinner at The Dome later today.
