Bendel Insurance FC Gets Promoted To NPFL After 11 Years, Hails Gov. Obaseki by Nobody: 9:20am On Jan 09, 2019
The campaign by Insurance Football Club of Benin to secure a place in the Nigeria Professional Football League has yielded the desired result after Monday’s 1-0 defeat handed Remo Stars, in their second match of the Nigeria National League Super 8 Play-offs in Aba.

The team’s promotion to the elite NPFL league brings to an end Insurance FC’s quest to reverse its fortunes and restore the faith of its teeming fans in Nigeria and beyond.

An elated Chairman of the Edo State Sports Commission Godwin Dudu-Orumen, was quoted as saying: “The Insurance that people see today is a product of many years’ efforts and hard work put in place to ensure the realisation of this dream.

“The darling club of the Edo people had been away from topflight football for a long time and our sports-loving governor ensured that we got all the support needed to achieve that dream.”

He saluted the efforts of the Edo State Governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki, and his deputy, Rt. Hon. Philip Shaibu at repositioning the club for the feat the team has achieved.

“The team have a lot of young players, who are hungry for glory. But the focus is to finish as high as possible in the abridged NPFL when the season begins. It will be foolhardy to gain promotion and return to relegation the same season, so we will ensure a correct blend of youth and experience to remain in the topflight.

“After that, we will then work on winning titles in the league and achieve continental qualification as well,” Dudu-Orumen added.

According to reports, a goal from Junior Osaghae ensured that Insurance FC got the maximum six points after two matches to secure promotion with a match left. The team is to play rivals Shooting Stars in their last match on Wednesday.

Actually feels shorter than 11 years. I remember former under 20 goalie Ambrose Vanzekin was their keeper at the time they got relegated. That was around 2008 after he returned from the Olympics in Beijing. It's been almost 11 years true true. Time sure flies fast
