Abdullahi Sule, his Deputy, Dr Emmanuel Agbadu Akabe, the Ministry of Youth and Sports Development, the Supporters’ Club and the good people of the state,” Adams Usman said after the game.

“I am so happy that, at the end of the proceedings, we are able to get a slot to play in the Super Eight Play-off. This is a collective victory.”

Sokoto United, Sporting Supreme and Madiba FC are the other teams that have earned a spot in the Super Eight playoff.
