“Infact just recently one of our players Abdulrahman Bashir, a boy from Ilorin here, developed by the club is now a big player at Enyimba and he is now a millionaire by all standard, Look at coach Suleiman Dogo (a local chief from here) now with Nasarawa utd as a Millionaire coach, Look at Akeem Audu, a player, will in next few months graduate from University of Ilorin and host of others”
