Speaking during the press conference, a proud Chief financial officer of the Bank, Tunde Lawal, who represented the bank's managing director, had this to say;
"One of our first branches was opened in Ikorodu and you could see that the commitment to this club and Ikorodu community was heavenly made," he stated.
"We will support you in every way we can and we hope the club wins the NNL and play in the top flight League soon, Welcome to Lotus Bank."

Incorporated in 2007 as a platform for training and developing indigent youths and turning them into responsible citizens, Ikorodu City was rebranded from Bolowotan Football Club, a community-based club in Ikorodu.
The club will be competing in the National League, Nigeria's second-tier league, this season with their first game of the season slated for Saturday against Giants Brillars at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos at 4 pm.
