Pascal, who is also the Super Eagles coordinator, added that the partnership would strengthen the development of football at the grassroots.

In his words, “We as the football custodians in the state, deemed it necessary that we partner with the police command to ensure the safety of lives and properties of players and officials in the state.

“If people know that their lives and properties are secured at match venues without any form of violence, it would further encourage more people and investors to come and invest in the development of the game at the grassroots.”
