Promise Kept: Kwara United Shines In CAFCC's Opening Game, Receives Saliu Mustapha's $1,500 Gift

The Harmony Warriors, Kwara United has thrashed the AS Douanes of the Niger Republic in the ongoing CAF Confederation Cup in a match earlier held today.

Recall that 9japarrot Media that the All Progressives Congress candidate in the Kwara Central Senatorial race, Saliu Mustapha pledged to reward the players with 500 dollars for every goal scored against their opponent in the match.

After the debut winning which the team recorded earlier today, the 2023 APC Kwara Central Senatorial Candidate has fulfilled his part of the promise by redeeming the $1500 pledge to the Kwara United football club for defeating AS Douanes of Niger Republic in their opening game in the CAF Confederation cup. 

The Kwara side had their first outing on Sunday at the Mobolaji Johnson stadium in Lagos state.

The game had dignitaries including the Executive Governor of Kwara state, Mallam Abdulrahman AbdulRazaq, his wife, Amb. Olufolake AbdulRazaq, Kwara North Senator, and Sen. Umar Sadiq among others in attendance.

The team scored their first goal after a penalty kick taken by Paul Samson, five minutes into the match.

The second and third goals, which came in at the 35th and 45th minutes respectively were scored by the team's super striker, Wasiu Jimoh.

With the three goals to nil, the team qualified for the cash prizes earlier announced by Mustapha, who is also the Turaki of Ilorin.

Recall as well that Mustapha had on Saturday announced cash prizes up to 20,000 USD for the team if they win the league.

For instance, for every goal scored, the team earns 500 USD and the sum 10, 000 USD, if they advance beyond the group stage.

Turaki noted that the cash reward is his modest way of supporting Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq's vision of constantly positioning Kwara on the big stage through sports and other endeavors.

Ahead of the Sunday game, the Kwara Central Senatorial hopeful spoke with the Kwara United FC players and the team over a video call, encouraging them to make Kwara and Nigeria proud.

He also sponsored hundreds of supporters to watch the match to cheer up the players.

Following this debut win, Kwarans have taken to social media to celebrate the brilliant performance displayed by the Harmony Warriors.
