Warri Wolves FC has dedicated its victory in Wednesday’s Federation Cup quarter-final over Kano Pillars FC to the Delta State Governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan.
Warri Wolves, at the Ilorin Township Stadium in Kwara State, defeated Kano Pillars 3-0 to qualify for the semi-final of the 2013 Federation Cup.
Captain of Warri wolves, Azubuike Egweke, said Uduaghan has shown uncommon support for the team.
Egweke said without the support, the team would not have come this far in all the competitions it has been taking part in.
It is the first time that a team from Delta State will reach the semi-final of the Federation Cup, initially called the FA Cup.
It is the oldest and most glamorous football competition in Nigeria.
Egweke said: “This victory is dedicated to our sports-loving Governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, who has remained our pillar and mainstay.”
Warri Wolves will battle Akwa United for a place in the Federation Cup final next week Wednesday in Lagos.
