His Excellency, Governor Godwin Obaseki, graced the departure of Bendel Insurance as they set off from Benin, bound for Lagos en route to Algiers for their second leg of the first preliminary round of the CAF Confederations Cup clash.
The Governor bid the team farewell, instilling confidence and motivation as they embark on their journey to face their opponents as his presence carried a powerful message of encouragement.
Bendel Insurance will on Saturday by 8 pm trade tackles with ASO Chlef of Algeria at the 12,000 Salem Mabrouki stadium, 22 kilometres away from the country’s capital, Algiers. The winner of this clash will face RS Berkane in the second preliminary stages.
The Benin Arsenal defeated ASO Chlef by a lone goal scored by Imade Osarenkhoe at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium last Saturday.
