Obiekwu said; “The story is absolutely true, there is no lie about it. I had to open up on my situation to people because I needed help.”
“It was not an easy thing to do, but I had to summon very great courage because things are very tough.”
“The club I manage is Ingas and we play in NLO 1, we don’t train every day – we train Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. So Tuesdays and Thursdays, I’m always free and I use those days to go for my transport business.”
