Speaking on the requests made by the supporters, Mr. Akin Maxwell promised to do his best in that regard. He said that he could not promise to attend to all of the requests, but that he would see to it that a large portion of them are met.

In addition, the secretary of the supporters club, Mr. Taiwo, asked the chairman to fix a date before the Nigerian National League (NNL) season commences so that the supporters club can go to the new camp of the players at Iragbiji local government area to pray for them and the officials of the team.

The chairman responded that he would convey this request to management, as he could not make this decision alone. He said that praying for the team before the league starts is a good idea, but that he would need to consult with the other management members to fix an appropriate time for prayers.

The visit of the Osun United supporters club to the new chairman is a positive sign for the club’s future. It shows that the supporters are united and behind the new chairman, and that they are committed to working with him to achieve the club’s goals.
