A solitary strike from Ndukwe Okoro against Firstbank FC at Teslim Balogun Stadium Lagos was all Heartland Football Club of Owerri, needed this afternoon to wrap up their effort in the quest for a return to Nigerian Premier League. The first leg encountered earlier in the season at Dan Anyiam Stadium had ended 2-1 in favor of the Naze Millionaires.
The 0-1 winning of Heartland FC has now placed the Naze Millionaires firmly on top of the Southern Conference League Table ahead of their closest rivals Go-Round FC and Bayelsa FC and has subsequently earned the club promotion back to the Premier League.
We recalled that Heartland FC was last season relegated to National Professional Football League for the first time in the club history to much of disappointment of fans and football followers from Imo State.
We say a big Congratulations to the Naze Millionaires
