By Jonathan Ugbal

The annual Comrade Odey Adamade unity football tournament slated for late August and early September has been shifted to December, a statement from the organizers of the competition says.

The statement signed by the coordinator, Mr. David Undeshi, and made available to CrossRiverWatch said that the shift was due “to our member’s involvement in the just concluded bye-elections in Obudu.”

The organizers regretted any inconvenience caused by the shift even as they hoped that the delay will enable them plan a more engaging and “competitive tournament.”

The competition usually features teams from the ten political wards in Obudu local government area and seeks to foster peace and unity among the youths during the New Yam festival period.

The 2017 edition was won by the Nairabet Football Club.

Sources in the planning committee had earlier informed CrossRiverWatch that there are plans to make the competition bigger and sustainable.
