For the title win, a proposal has been sent to the Enugu State Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi to reward the players with lands.

Speaking in an interview, the Enugu State Sports Commissioner Charles Ndukwe said land rewards are much better than cash and cars.

Even if the person decides to sell it tomorrow, he gets a lot of money but you know we need to teach them financial discipline,” Ndukwe, told Complete Sports.

 “But if the governor decides to give them cash, fine and good. You know he has a large heart and whatever he’s going to give these boys he’ll bring to the exco where it will be discussed before execution.

Some of these players earn up to N500,000 but you still see them going to the money lender to collect loans where they will pay about 25% interest which is not good.”

Ndukwe is also proposing a date for the official presentation of the NPFL trophy to the Governor as well as a victory parade around the state.
