….players, officials applaude move.
In its untirery efforts and commitment to improvising the welfare of Bendel Insurance and Edo Queens Football Clubs,
the management of the Edo State owned clubs have enrolled their players and officials for the compulsory Edo State Health Insurance Scheme.
The enrollment exercise kicked off today, Tuesday, 7 February, 2023, at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium with the
officials of the Edo State Health Insurance Commission already on ground as early as 8:00am and immediately commenced the process.
Players, officials and backroom staff of both clubs who made themselves available for the exercise took their turns to complete the documentation and data capture processes.
Speaking during the exercise, the captains of the teams commended Edo State Government and the management of the teams for the initiative, saying that they see the scheme as part of motivation because it means giving them a sense of belonging.
The captain of Bendel Insurance FC, Maurice Prince, said he was happy to be part of the exercise and Bendel Insurance FC success story. He added: “Let me thank Edo state government and our management for all that they have been doing for us. They have always taken care of our medicals before now, so, enrolling us for the health Insurance scheme, means they have extended the facility to capture our families. Whether on duty or not, we can now access health facilities without thinking of looking for big amounts of money for treatment. I thank our government and management for this gesture”.
While also reacting, Edo Queens captain, Onyebuchi Ihuoma Goodness, said that the scheme is of great advantage and benefits for them, promising that they will reciprocate the kind gesture in the field of play and remain loyal to their proprietors.
