According to Adedeji, “Oghenekaro is another player we are willing to invest in, he is a prospect I developed interest in from Asaba Opens earlier last year” he explained, “he has played fewer rated games and he is very young. We hope he keeps his head high and play with his heart to be able to help the team.”
