As part of his contribution to ensure a successful campaign in the ongoing National County Sports Meet, the General Manager of the Security Expert Guard Agency of Liberia (SEGAL), Momo Cyrus, has donated L$100,000 to his native Lofa County.
Mr. Cyrus said every well-meaning Lofian should rally around the team to ensure it gets the necessary support. “The team needs all of our support and we should do all we can to motivate them,” he said.
During the presentation over the weekend, the SEGAL manager disclosed that the donation was his initial contribution to the team in this year’s County Meet.
Mr. Cyrus used the medium to call on other citizens and dignitaries of Lofa County to join the process in helping the team move to another stage, which would be made possible through their many contributions.
“I’m impressed by your performance, especially the way you have conducted yourselves in the field of play; and as a son of Lofa County, I will continue to support this team, because support is the key to victory,” he said.
He urged members of the team to persevere in their endeavors, and work tirelessly by ensuring that Lofa emerges victorious in this year’s Meet.
He promised to provide US$5,000 to the team if they win the 2016 trophy.
Team captain Daniel Powoe was appreciative of the SEGAL Manager’s support, saying: “Rest assured that the team will return to the county victorious. Your contribution has reawakened our spirits to go for the best and sure we will get there successfully.”
He said despite the many financial challenges facing the team, they are not deterred but “will continue to exhibit the spirit of victory and play with more vigor with the expectation of returning home victorious.”
Coach Ben Sadee also welcomed Cyrus’ support and called on other citizens of Lofa County to follow his example and contribute to the team.
Members of the team appreciated Mr. Cyrus with cheers and described his support as timely, promising to work effectively to take the trophy to Lofa.
Meanwhile, Lofa recently battled Grand Bassa County in the quarter-finals at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium to 0-0 draw.
Both Lofa and Grand Bassa counties were reduced to 10 men after red cards were given to both sides in the 75th and 81st minutes, respectively.
