Rivers State governor Nyesom Wike will score the first goal of the #YoboTestimonial which takes place at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium in Port Harcourt on Friday.
Yobo, in whose honour the game is being played, said instead of the usual ceremonial kickoff, there will be a ceremonial penalty, to be taken by the governor against former Nigeria goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama
“Governor Wike is a man of unique qualities, so it is only right that we give him the distinction of opening this special game in a unique fashion,” the former Nigeria captain said.
“Although he is a great goalkeeper and a great penalty saver, I don’t think that Enyeama can stop that penalty.”
A host of international stars and former Nigeria players will be in Port Harcourt for the match, which follows last weekend’s international golf tournament and Yobo says it is a credit to the Wike administration that the state is hosting major events without any incidents
“High profile events and people are coming to Rivers State and it is a credit to the governor that all these events are happening in peaceful circumstances.”
Kickoff for the game is at 4PM and it is live on SuperSport 3HD and SuperSport 9.
