Port Harcourt based author and sports journalist, James Abutu Onoja has pledged towards the Victor Ezeji Testimonial, VET that comes up on Saturday in Port Harcourt.
Onoja told the chairman of the Main Organising Committee, China Acheru that he will make available copies of his book, “Hooliganism, Violence and Security in Soccer,” to Ezeji to hand over to his friends who come to play the game.
"I always cherished the style, discipline & dedication to any team Victor Ezeji played for, hence I am supporting him with my book on why fans should shun hooliganism & violence in sports,” Onoja told VET Media.
"My book titled - Hooliganism, Violence & Security in Soccer - is meant to educate sport fans on the consequences of Hooliganism of any form.”
Chairman of the Main Organising Committee, China Acheru told VET Media that what Onoja has done is a welcome development.
“In events like these, not every sponsor or partner will give you money. But sometimes things like these go a long way to show that the people around are interested in what you are doing,” Acheru said.
“Like we have said many times before, Victor Ezeji deserves this testimonial and it will hold on Saturday in Port Harcourt. We are also happy at the level of awareness it is creating within and around Port Harcourt as well as across the country.
“We need more people like Onoja around us and maybe then we will truly be confident to say Victor Ezeji is well loved in Nigeria.”
