Enugu State celebrates Christian Chukwu at 70

The Enugu State government has congratulated the iconic former Nigerian international football player and national coach, who is an illustrious son of the state, Chairman Christian Chukwu, on his attainment of 70 years.

In a statement, the Enugu State Commissioner for Information, Nnanyelugo Chidi Aroh, said that the government and the people of the state are "indeed very proud of the immesurable contributions of this great son of Enugu State to the development of the game of football both locally and internationally".

Aroh added that "we recall with great delight the numerous contributions of Christian Chukwu to the game of football including leading the Nigerian National team, The Green Eagles, as Captain to win their first ever African Nations Cup in 1980".

The Information Commissioner pointed out that "Christian Chukwu also had an outstanding career as coach of various National teams, including Nigeria, Kenya and Lebanon" remarking that "his (Chukwu's) performance at various times as player, coach and manager of Enugu Rangers International FC is indeed unparalleled".

"As we join his family, friends and the entire football family worldwide in celebrating this football icon, we beseech the Almighty God to grant him good health of mind and body", Aroh said.

Enugu State is in the hands of God!

Think you know what you're saying? That's like underestimating his competency! Chairman Chukwu is as good as the best of them, if not better! And I tell you that he'll coach FC Barcelona or Juventus before he retires from active Coaching! Get wise to yourself, Bro.
