Ewhrudjakpo urges Bayelsa Queens to win league
The Bayelsa State Government has charged players and officials of Bayelsa Queens to win the 2022/23 Nigerian Women’s Football League.
The state Deputy Governor, Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo, gave the charge when he hosted the Yenagoa-based side to a special dinner at the Golden Tulip Hotel, Yenagoa, on Sunday.
He said as queens of West African football, they should not lower the standard of their game, as the current league season winds down.
Ewhrudjakpo, in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Doubara Atasi, assured the team that the state government would do everything to motivate them at all times in order to ensure they win the league and represent Nigeria at the continental level.
Ewhrudjakpo said, “We have got to a standard and if we go below that standard, we have failed. We are not doing badly, but we also believe that we can do better. So, maintain your place at the top to win the league and also win the Super 6.
“Bayelsa Queens, as queens of Nigerian football, queens of West African football, and as second runners-up of African football, we can’t compromise that standard. So, anything that is supposed to be done by us, we are going to do.
