Vexed by the dismal performance of Enugu Rangers International FC so far in the NPFL, the Enugu State Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, has dissolved the Governing Board of the club led by Ozo Chibuzor, reports Sportstalkafrica.com.
Governor Ugwuanyi according to reports held a fact-finding meeting with the Board, Management, players, supporters club and other stakeholders of club where it was unanimously agreed that there was need for a change in the management of the club.
After the meeting the Governor approved the appointment of the former captain and coach of the team, Christian Chukwu, as the new General Manager and Chief Executive Officer of the club.
The decision we gathered was not unconnected with the unimpressive performance of the club this season which has been a source of concern for the state government, supporters of the club and other stakeholders.
Chairman, as Chukwu is fondly called, thanked the governor for the appointment and his prompt intervention and promised to put in his best to ensure that Rangers retains it current status in Nigeria football.
He called for the cooperation and support of the board, management, players and all other stakeholders of the club to take it to an enviable height.
Ozo the outgoing GM when contacted noted: ‘I’m glad to have worked at Rangers Int FC for 9 years. I think Christian Chukwu is ideal to take over from me.”
