He stated this during an interactive session with Taravoices at the Jolly Nyame stadium Jalingo.
According to the coach, Governor Ishaku has so far made a very important appointment into his backroom staff as the appointment is coming at a very critical time in Taraba sports developmental strides.
“This is a very good move by our dear Governor. I have no doubt in my mind that the appointment of this seasoned sports administrator is a step in the right direction”.
He added that “his antecedent is there for all to see. He will definitely bring to bear his vast experience in sports administration and take us to new heights”.
The soccer tactician revealed that the bane of sports development in Taraba is funding.
“Let me tell you something, we have all it takes to be a top state in sports but the stumbling block is always finance. Sports is an expensive venture but at the same time, it can attract huge commercial interest to the state. We have an enabling environment, an excellent sports facility and uncountable talented young men and women who with the right motivation can become world beaters any time”.
Coach Matthew stressed the need for government to back the Special Adviser so as to bring the desired change in both FC Taraba and Taraba Queens FC.
“He needs support. It is one thing to appoint and it is another is to back him up. I believe our Governor will back him with the needful for our teams to excel in their various leagues”.
