Ebele Obi has told SCORENigeria Heartland instant return to the NPFL has made up for the club’s elimination from the Aiteo Cup.
‘Naze Millionaires’ Heartland have clinched promotion back to the top flight from the Southern Conference of the NNL.
This was after they were eliminated by regional rivals FC Ifeanyiubah in this year’s Aiteo Cup.
“This promotion to the NPFL has erased the pains we suffered when we exited the FA Cup,” Obi told ScoreNigeria.com.ng
“I feel great for this achievement, in fact words can’t explain how happy I am now.
“That was our target before the league started and this is just a mission accomplished.”
