Imo Commissioner for Youth and Sports, Mr Emeka Okoronkwo, has charged players and management of Heartland Football Club, Owerri to bring home the Nigerian National League Trophy.

He advised them to remain focused and disciplined to achieve the set goal and to reciprocate the government’s gestures by returning Heartland FC to the top flight.

“Gov. Uzodimma is interested in the team because this team makes Imo people happy, that is why the welfare of the players is our top priority, hence the settlement of all outstanding payments.

” This season we have paid all match bonuses, even the one for Awka is here with us, as I speak all outstanding salaries have been cleared.

“ Government has done her part. Imo people expect you to reciprocate this gesture. You must go for gold “, he said.

The team’s General Manager, Mr Promise Nwachukwu also thanked the state government for its untiring efforts towards returning Heartland FC to the elite division.

He also appreciated Coach Christian Obi-led Technical Crew for their dedication and discipline and urged Imo people to support the team to victory.
