Super Eagles Supporters Club (SESC) has decorated Mr. Lucky Monye as the body’s ambassador with the privilege of nominating five persons who could travel with the SESC to anywhere around the world.
President of the SESC, Vincent Okumagba, who is from Delta state, also said Mr. Monye who is from Ika land is the first to be decorated ambassador of the national football supporters body.
At the event which held at Orchid Hotel in Asaba, the state capital, Mr. Okumagba said SESC was formed several years ago to provide moral support to the Super Eagles of Nigeria. He added that the club travels with the Super Eagles anywhere around the world.
Okumagba, who said football has become the only unifying factor in Nigeria, said the club has grown from few members to several thousands with members across the globe.
He said Mr. Monye is the first member to be inducted as ambassador in Delta state. He said the body does not just pick people, but it has a screening committee which ensures that intending members have no negative report before they are admitted.
He said Monye has been identified as a man who has helped society and people around him, hence his qualification to become ambassador of the national football supporters club.
In his speech after his decoration, Ambassador Lucky Monye said he was privileged and honoured to be the first Deltan among millions of people in the state.
He said: “Who am I? Small me to be nominated as ambassador of this great club. I was in the United States when I was called that I I’ve been nominated. It was not by error. It was planned by God.”
Monye assured the club that he would continue to support and partner the the SESC any time it is deemed necessary. He said having been inducted into the club, he would join hands to chart a course for the football supporters club.
Seeing football as the major unifying factor in Nigeria, he said: “Whether we like it or not Nigeria is one. For me, Monye, I will not disappoint youths, Delta state and Nigeria at large”.
