The Bangladesh Embassy in Abuja has thrown its weight behind the All Nigerian Players Union (ANPU).
To this end, the embassy has shown interest in collaborating with the union as part of efforts aimed at entrenching the development of football in Nigerian schools.
This initiative was put forward by the embassy at an interactive session with the ANPU Board of Trustees Chairman/National Coordinator, Chikelue Iloenyosi and President of the union, Abdul Sule, held at the Lead British High School in Abuja on Monday, October 18, 2021.
The football pressure group which was unveiled on October 10, 2021, in Lagos, has been receiving accolades and support from Nigerians and followers of the beautiful game who see the body as a good omen for the country, as it concerns the welfare of Nigerian players and their representation.
At the weekend, Iloenyosi was in Owerri, Imo State, to meet with players and officials of Heartland FC to discuss ways of making the welfare of active Nigerian players and Ex-players a priority. A similar visit is expected to hold in other parts of the country.
