A Nigerian in the Diaspora has donated brand new trumpets to the Nigeria Football Supporters Club (NFSC) to counter the dearth of the musical instruments in the club.
Taking delivery of the instruments on Wednesday at the club’s secretariat on Funso William’s Avenue in Surlere, Lagos, Samuel Ikpea, the National Chairman, said the gift came after his appeal to the donor.
“I discussed with one of our members in the Diaspora on Monday, April 12, and I complained about the need for Trumpets in the club as a matter of urgency.
“Surprisingly, I got a call from a delivery guy today who said he had a package for the club; and when he got here, behold, it was six brand new trumpets from him.
“On this note I want the house to say words of prayer for him and two of my wonderful members in the U.S. who have been supportive of this club before now.
“God bless you all my wonderful brothers,’’ Ikpea said.
Some of the members, who reacted to the gesture, prayed that God in His infinite mercy pour blessings upon the donor and other Diaspora Nigerians who had been assisting the club.
The Public Relations Officer, Dominic Ehimare, said: “I feel very elated with this gesture from a member in the Diaspora.
“This is an eloquent testimony of our belief in the leadership of Rev. Ikpea and his current executive.
“Thank you very much. I can assure you that we will deliver and shine like the northern star in the discharge of our duties as patriotic citizens of Nigeria. Thank you for your donations.”
Another wrote on the club’s Whatsapp platform, “NFSC Global’’, that “this is certainly the Lord’s doing and it can only be marvelous in our eyes.
“Thank you our able chairman for a good job and, more importantly, that member for his spontaneous response to such a clarion call.
“May God in his infinite mercy continue to replenish your pocket and you will never lack anything good in your life.”
