“We appreciate you for your level of commitment, I tell you, that and passion will take us to greater heights.

“Now the Aketi Government wants you to do well this season; go all out and secure continental ticket for us,” the Commissioner urged.

The Commissioner also expressed appreciation to Akinyemi and the entire Sunshine Stars management for all their efforts towards making the Owena Whales a better team during the Saturday’s visit to the players’ base.
