Organizers of the Victor Ezeji Testimonial have announced a new date for the event.
The Chairman of the Main Organizing Committee, China Acheru, says the event that was earlier slated for December 10, will now take place on December 17.
Acheru informed that the Independent National Electoral Commission scheduling re-run elections in Rivers State for December 10 occasioned the change.
He said: “We have been forced to alter our plans following INEC’s announcement. They have fixed re-run elections in the state for our initial chosen date, which is the 10th of December.
“We have decided to reschedule the Victor Ezeji Testimonial for exactly a week later. That means the event will now hold on the 17th.”
Acheru however informed that the change in date would not distort the spirit and mood for the event as the MOC’s plans will continue as scheduled to ensure a spectacular showing on the new date.
He added: “This does not change much. We will continue with our plans only having in mind that the event will now be a week later than earlier planned. We are still very much committed to delivering a colourful event that will indeed be worthy of celebrating the Nigerian league legend called Ezeji.”
