Rangers International F.C’ GM/CEO, Amobi Ezeaku will be setting another landmark record as he is listed in the match day squad for the ‘Flying Antelopes’ in their M.D 23, NPFL 2023/2024 fixture against host, Niger Tornadoes F.C, inside the main bowl of Ahmadu Bello Stadium, Kaduna.

Ezeaku, an accomplished football administrator and former goalkeeper/player will have a taste of action in the top echelon of the NPFL for the first time.

Before his emergence, Edo state Deputy Governor, Comrade Phillip Shaibu, had made headlines few seasons ago when he was drafted into Bendel Insurance first team squad and got the opportunity to play in some of the matches in the league.

Interestingly, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Flying Antelopes will become the first to add his administrative responsibilities to playing in the league, as well as join the class of few eminent personalities that had featured for their clubsides as General Managers.

Recently, Ezeaku got the support of Rangers coaching crew led by Ilechukwu to join the team when his performance in a match saw him score a wonderful television-made goal through a header.

The exploits of the Nigerian lawyer on and off the pitch has been described by Nigerians and supporters of the Coal City side as excellent.

Two years ago, Ezeaku bagged a UEFA certificate and FIFA’ Masters Certificate in football management, and was also honoured after being appointed into a group of independent integrity experts and pro bono counsel, the first of its kind that was created by World’s football governing body, FIFA.

Since taking over as the General Manager/Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the former Nigerian champions last year, the Enugu side has experienced a massive turn around in administration, financial prudence, infrastructural development and confidence building among the players, coaches and staff.
