Obaseki noted, “I commend the exceptional and remarkable performance of Bendel Insurance FC during their last weekend clash with RS Berkane of Morocco in the second preliminary round of the 2023/24 CAF Confederation Cup.
“The team, despite their 1-0 loss to the home team, played excellently well, dominated the game and created numerous scoring opportunities throughout their 90 minutes of the fascinating and tension-filled match but was unable to convert the opportunities into goals.
“You have continued to make us proud and we are proud of your achievements so far having just returned from relegation. I urge you to keep your chins up and gear up for an impressive run at the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) which has just commenced.”
He added, “As a government, we will continue to support you, providing you with the necessary resources and other incentives to thrive and realise your fullest potential, even as we call on our dear football-loving Edo people to continue to stand with our darling team, Bendel Insurance.”
