Commissioner for Sports Development and Cinematography, Offu Aya gave the charge in Calabar during the unveiling ceremony of the new coach at the UJ Esuene Stadium.
He said the State Government will do it’s best to fulfil and possibly surpass the terms of the agreement,saying the only thing they need from the new technical adviser is for Cross River owned Calabar Rovers FC to get to top rank in the national and continental competition.
Responding, the new technical adviser, Samson Unuanel said he came to help Calabar Rovers secure the Premier League ticket in the coming season.
Chairman of Calabar Rovers FC Ejen Ebam assured the New Coach of maximum cooperation.
