“We have tried enough, as we have roled out numerous measures, which includes, but not limited to hiring a new Technical Adviser, and beefing up the team with new players, and the introduction of incentives, just to make the team better. But how would you all justify your performances? “he asked.

“Our Supporters and Fans, as well as some stakeholders, came all the way from Ilorin to watch you play and cheer you to victory. You are supposed to compensate their sacrifices with good performances and result, but the reverse was the case. You also disappointed your Akure fans, too.
