The Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) leaders, Rivers United campaign in the new season received a major boost, with approval of a new bus by  Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State.

Also the Government-owned female Football Club,  Rivers Angels will get a new bus.  

The Stanley Eguma tutored side who returned to the summit of the Nigeria's top flight league with 15points after last Sunday's home one/nil home win against Adamawa United,  will get a 54-seater Air-conditioned luxurious bus fitted with convenience and other accessories, while Rivers Angels will get a 25-Seater Air-conditioned coaster bus.

The State Commissioner for Sports,Boma Iyaye said that the move was aimed at making  players and officials comfortable and boost the teams’ morale, especially Rivers United who are campaigning  in CAF competition and doing well in the domestic league. 

Rivers Commissioner for Sports, Boma Iyaye, who broke the news shortly before Rivers United encounter against Adamawa United in the ongoing NPFL League, commended Governor Wike for his genuine interest towards the development of sports

Accompanied by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, Sir Honour Sirawoo, Iyaye said the governor was passionate about the progress of both Rivers United, Rivers Angels and Rivers Hoopers, and ready to do all within his powers to make the clubs even better.

The Commissioner said the gesture coming few months after the governor reconstructed the dilapidated main football and training pitches of the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium, will no doubt, serve as a further tonic in the teams’ performance.

"Recall that it was Governor Wike that gave new buses some years ago, and cleared outstanding salaries, bonuses and allowances of the clubs. He has just approved another set of brand new and sophisticated buses for them",he said 

"We must commend him for this magnanimity and show of support. His timely interventions have been our propelling force and I am glad the teams are living up to expectations”, Iyaye stated. 

He charged the Clubs to reciprocate the kind gesture by giving their best and fighting for all available titles within and outside Nigeria.
