The management of NYSC FC has commended the Organisers of the Unity Preseason Tournament for putting up a robust medical team on ground that were quick in saving the life of one of its players during one of the matches in tournament.
In a message to the organisers, the management of NYSC FC said, “we wish to express our profound gratitude to the organisers of Unity Pre-season Tournament and the members of the Wikki Tourists FC on the timely intervention in saving the life of our player, Collins Ugwu during our game with Wikki Tourists. We also appreciate the efforts of FRSC medical team which was on ground at the tournament. The efforts were well appreciated. We Wish you a successful completion of the tournament”.
