“Muhydeen was then the Ambassador of Football in Ido but has now become Soccer Ambassador in our Federal Constituency due to his good initiative of promoting football in this constituency and beyond. He has turned Hammola Int’l FC to a great club known across the world and as a team to beat.
“We are so proud of him cos he’s doing very well. He has started an initiative that we must support and it’s a must for us to support him. If we have 5 or 10 youth who are like Hammola who can replicate this kind of initiative in our federal constituency, sports could have developed more than this. We also appreciate his support to our party and pray that all of us will reap bountifully from the fruits of the party,” stated Hon. Salam

They never looked down on me as they always answer when I call on them. May God bless them all.”
