Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode on Wednesday donated N50m (fifty million naira) to the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries Football Club for its CAF Champions League campaign.
Correspondent, Adedoja Salam-Adeniyi reports that it was a gift that caught many of the Mfm players and others at the event at the governor’s office by surprise.
For top football officials gathered here, Governor Ambode’s 50 million donation was just the morale booster needed for next year’s CAF championship league outing.
MFM’s Director of Sports, Godwin Enakhena wouldn’t have know what was coming when he showed his team’s appreciation to the Lagos Government for allowing MFM football club the use of the Agege Stadium for free as home-ground.
For governor Ambode, the gift was merely a pat on the back for a team that has not just shown promise but is returning the State to the prestigious CAF Champions League sixteen years after a team from the State participated in the tournament.
But the surprise of the 50 million gift was just too hard to hold back for all.
And according to the governor, particular credit must go to Pastor Kayode Olukoya whose vision ten years ago, has now become a reality deserving of support.
