"It was a very difficult match as we all know that MFM is a good side and for me to score the winning goal is special", the former El-Kanemi Warriors of Maiduguri said.

He commended the players and officials for working together to achieve the victory revealing that before the game, they had agreed to win the match in honour of the club's chairman, Chief Emeka Inyama who was celebrating his birthday.
