By Sab Osuji: Players of Rivers United reaped an instant N7m reward from Governor Nyesom Wike following their 2-0 Nigeria Professional Football League win over Shooting Stars of Ibadan on Sunday at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium, Port Harcourt, Completesportsnigeria.com
Wike watched the Pride of Rivers for the first time since assumption of office on May 29, 2015.
Though he did not get to see the two goals having arrived at the stadium after Guy Kuemian and Fredrick Obomate had scored, Complete Sports reports that the Rivers State No.1 citizen made the promise when he addressed the players inside the dressing room at half time.
As if that was not enough motivation, Governor Wike announced a promise of N15m to the team for any away win in the remaining part of the season.
