Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has rejected an award offered to him by the Edo State Football Federation.
Governor Obaseki said he does not receive awards as a Governor and the one to be presented by the football body would not be an exception.
Obaseki rejected the award at a party where he feted members of the Bendel Insurance Football Club for qualifying to the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) after 11 years relegation.
The Edo Governor who urged the team to give account of themselves in the NPFL said the team lived up to the challenge thrown at them at the unveiling of the re-branded club in 2018.
Obaseki then announced N25m cash reward for the players and N5m for the supporters club.
