The brief, but vital ceremony took place at the Naze Millionaires’ clubhouse where Hon. Onwuachi was president with the club’s distinct replica jersey and accessories. Hon. Onwuachi who is the representative/coordinator of the Imo state government in the Netherlands becomes the latest VIP supporter of Heartland FC, which also has other illustrious sons of Imo state on the list.
Speaking to newsmen after the event, Hon Onwuachi noted that he has been a passionate supporter of Heartland FC since his youthful days and has not lost love for the club. He, however, urged the government to endevour to set up the club with sufficient funds that will help them execute the new season.
“This is a club I am used to, right from the days it started as Trojans and now Heartland FC. I have been a full time supporter and I think it is time for me to really identify myself with the club considering the fact that my friend is now the president and I have his interest at heart,” said Hon. Onwuachi.
He further stated that: “one of the ways Heartland FC will bounce back is by getting sufficient finance and the government needs to play a big role on that. The president has done well by getting private supporters whom were instrumental to Heartland’s promotion back to the top flight.”
Hon. Onwuachi who resides in Europe also pledged his unending support for the club in cash or in kind.
Heartland FC will kick-off her 2018 Nigeria Professional League Football (NPFL) campaign by engaging Sunshine Stars of Akure on the 14th of January at the Dan Anyiam Stadium, Owerri.
