Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has congratulated  Rivers United Football Club of Port Harcourt for securing a CAF Champions League ticket after they emerged second in the just-concluded Nigeria Professional Football League  (NPFL).

Governor  Wike said that management  and players were  worthy ambassadors  of Rivers State all through  the 2015/2016 NPFL  season, displaying great football  artistry and professionalism.
He particularly  lauded the players for reciprocating the sponsorship  of the state government,  by being committed all through the just concluded season.
The governor  assured the management and players of Rivers United of the continued support  of the State Government  as they fly the flag of Nigeria  in the forthcoming  CAF Champions League.
It will be recalled that Governor Wike upon assumption of office as the Rivers State Governor merged the defunct Sharks and Dolphin Football Clubs to form a stronger team–Rivers United.
The New Rivers United has been well-funded  by Governor Wike  , leading to their superlative performance  in the NPFL .
