Hon. Olusola Osetoba, the Technical Advisor to the Ekiti State Governor on Sports Development, has assured prompt payment of April salaries to the state-owned club, Ekiti United FC.

Osetoba said the assurance would boost morale ahead of the team's final league match against Abia Comets in Umuahia for the Nigeria National League (NNL), Match Day 20.

In a meeting with the players at the Oluyemi Kayode Stadium in Ado-Ekiti, Osetoba assured the team of the government’s commitment to their welfare.

“His Excellency is dedicated to supporting your success. Go out there, make Ekiti proud, and return with a positive result,” he said.

In addition to the April salaries, the Government will settle outstanding bills and match bonuses within the next few weeks.

Team captain Adewale Makanjuola led the players in expressing gratitude to the Governor for his continued support and prompt response to their needs.

Also present at the meeting were Special Assistant to the Governor on Sports, Kola Owoseni, and Ekiti United team secretary, Adedeji Olowolafe.

This timely intervention by Hon. Osetoba demonstrates the government’s dedication to supporting Ekiti United FC and ensuring the team’s success in the league.
