Followers of the Nigeria Professional Football League have lambasted Ifeanyi Ubah FC for inactivity during the compulsory break caused by the corona virus pandemic.
Nigerians could not spare the blushes of the NPFL side after the club took to Twitter to celebrate their Chairman Prince Chukwuma’s birthday after 70 days of dead silence on the micro-blogging application.
The club had last made a post informing their followers about their indefinite break on April 1, 2020 before Thursday’s tweet in celebration of its chairman.
Victor Ekene, a FIFA and CAF accredited photojournalist was first to raise an eyebrow over the lack of content on the club’s Twitter account.
“On another episode of dragging an @LMCNPFL side. @FCIfeanyiUbah (don’t worry it’s not about salary) handle have been on break since the close of the league, no engagement, no images, no amazing goals or player profiles. Then they resume for their chairman’s birthday,” he posted.
In reaction to the tweet, @Okparaonline described the club’s inability to sustain fans with engaging content during the break as “shameful”.
Another user, @SirZion4321 revealed he stopped supporting the club due to their inability to sustain fans with engaging content on social media.
