Mr. Edu was also taken on a guided tour of the 102.1 FUFA fm where he was given the chance together with FUFA President to address the listeners.
The FUFA President was excited about Mr. Edu’s visit.
“We are very excited as FUFA and on behalf of FUFA i would like to thank the Managing director of NIC for doing a cutesy call, normally meetings are over issues but when the MD come and say he’s just making a cutesy call, and the message which have been delivered in the short meeting which we had in my office, it is very encouraging to say how much we are trying as an institution to get better.”
“And this is coming from the people who are putting money into the game, and this kind of assurance gives us a lot of energy to continue going forward.”
NIC Ag. MD Elias Edu in verbatim;
“We are very happy to be associated with FUFA. We thank FUFA President Eng. Moses Magogo and his team. We have been supporting sports for a very long time and football is something we consider very much. We are so pleased with our relationship with FUFA.”
“I took time to visit our friend and partner the FUFA President and we have shared our views to support football.”
“We want to support the League and ensure that the league has necessary infrastructures and make sure the players are compensated when there is an injury.”
“We want able men and women to go into football and deliver their best for the Country.”
“We want Uganda to win the World cup not just to participate and that is what we discussed today and thank God I have the President here who shared views in that vision he is focused on the future, he is not looking at Uganda of today but Uganda of the next 10-20 years to be a power house of football.”
“We thank you Mr. President and your team, myself and Miss Pamela. We are so much engaged, we want to promise you that you have a dependable partner in NIC and our love for football and sports is genuine. It’s not a love that started today. It’s the same love even in our parent Country (Nigeria).”
