The players and officials of Abia Comets Football Club departed Umuahia for a two weeks close camping in Nwkere, Imo State, ahead of the kick off of the Nigeria National League, reports Sportstalkafrica.com.
The Okezuo Boys left Umuahia with 42 players and the technical crew led by Victor Nwakama who is expected to name his final 30 man squad for the 2017 Nigeria National League season at the end of the camping.
“We are going to Nwkere for a two weeks close camping to avoid distractions and it will make us to blend the old and new players together early before the league kicks off,” Nwakama told Sportstalkafrica.com before the team departure from Umuahia.
Cheering news is that the Abia State Governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, has approved a 32 seater Coastal for the team.
It will be recalled that the team has been traveling with rented Abia Line buses for the past three seasons which has not been convenient for the players and officials to seat comfortably.
