Speaking about the team’s recent form, Hon Wasiu Isiaka emphasized the positive outcomes of the state government’s efforts to revitalize the club. He commended both players and coaching staff for their outstanding performance, urging them to continue building on their achievements with the imminent promotion to the NPFL in sight.

“The State Football Club, Gateway United FC has unfortunately remained in the second division of the Nigerian league for over a decade now, since 2010. The club sometimes struggle to survive relegation to the third division, but will GUFC change the story of over a decade this time? I am sure this will be the case, as we are working hard to put things in order.

And I can assure you that with the cooperation of all football enthusiats and stakeholders, this is just the beginning of a Greater GUFC. In the coming months, we would come out better”, the Commissioner stated.

Furthermore, General Manager Niyi Soleye appreciated the state government’s unwavering support and Commissioner Wasiu Isiaka’s morale-boosting presence at the Onikan Stadium.
