The Enyimba Football Club of Aba signed an initial N100m agreement with United Nigeria Airline for the sponsorship of the clubside on Friday.

The sponsorship agreement is for a two-year period covering the club's activities.

Speaking at the agreement signing ceremony in Enugu, the Chairman of Enyimba FC, Nwankwo Kanu, popularly known as Papilo, expressed his joy over the deal.

Kanu applauded the Chairman of the Airline, Prof. Obiora Okonkwo, for appreciating the sacrifices Enyimba FC had made for the country internationally.

“Today is a special day; Enyimba FC turned 24 before I became chairman. So, for the people of Abia State, His Excellency, Gov. Alex Otti, the staff, the club, and the league, we really appreciate the sponsorship.

“The United Nigeria Airline aims to unite everybody, and football is one of the biggest tools to unite Nigeria,” he said.

Kanu mentioned that United Nigeria Airline had come to help Enyimba, adding that other airlines could also contribute to the development of Nigerian football.

“It won't be easy for us, but with what is happening today, Enyimba will return to the top,” he assured.

Earlier, Okonkwo stated that the mantra of United Nigeria Airline was "flying to unite Nigerians."

According to him, the airline sees football as an essential factor that unites the Nigerian people, regardless of their tribe, race, or state.

“In our corporate social responsibility, we are happy to partner with Papilo,” he said.
