Nigerian Premier League club Enugu Rangers FC is set for a massive shakeup as State governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has revealed his administration’s plan to send a bill to the state House of Assembly to liberalise the ownership of the outfit. This is reportedly in a bid to inject new funds and ideas in the running of the club, and transform it into a more result-oriented output that will be the toast of sports lovers in the state and restore its glory days, Vanguard reports.
Gov. Ugwuanyi made the declaration during the first Enugu Sports Summit and unveiling of the 042 Sports Festival logo at De Dome Events Centre, Enugu, noting that his administration’s commitment to sporting activities, especially the progress of the Flying Antelopes was sacrosanct and a matter of priority.
Speaking at the event, Chairman of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Mr. Pinnick Amaju, commended the governor for the bold initiative to reposition the club for greatness through innovation, saying that it was a digital thinking, which would yield the desired positive result.
“This bill will provide platform for all of us to own Rangers International Football Club. Rangers belongs to us.” Pinnick said, before adding that “this is a digital thinking on the part of the governor of Enugu state to initiate this kind of bill for the funding of a football club.
“When passed into law, this will enhance sports development in the state and make Rangers Football Club the richest clubside in the country.”
Enugu Rangers FC are one of the biggest and oldest clubs on the local scene with six league titles, but are yet to win the league for the past three decades.
