Gov. Ambode Donates N50m To Mountain of Fire FC

Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State has donated N50 million to members of the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministry Football Club (MFM FC), as a form of encouragement for their impressive performance at the Nigeria Professional Football League last season.

Ambode announced the donation when he received the footballers and staff of MFM FC along with top officials of the Nigeria Football Federation at the statehouse in Alausa.

He applauded the team for qualifying for the CAF Champions league holding next year.

He donated N25m to the players and officials for qualifying for CAF Champions League and another N25m to ensure hitch-free campaign as well as adequately prepare for the tournament.

“We have directed the Lagos State Sports Commission to make sure that everything needed to ensure that Agege Stadium is certified by CAF for champion league is done,” Ambode said on Wednesday.

The Governor said the State Sports Commission had been directed to ensure that the Agege Stadium which is the home-ground of MFM FC, be put in good shape to meet up with the CAF standard before inspection in December.
