Nneka Ede, a Nigerian entrepreneur from the Southern part of the country has acquired a Portuguese club side in the third division of the Portuguese league. By this historic achievement(historic because she has now become the first African woman to buy a club outside the shores of Africa), she has encouraged other African enterpreneurs, male and female alike to continuing setting and breaking new records and achieve more to put Africa on the lime light of global achievement and International recognition.
This purchase was not made hastily, as the buyer says that she is a keen football enthusiast and has been following the progress of the Portuguese Club side Lustiano GC for several months. This is a Club that has participated competitively in the Portuguese League since 1912, more than a hundred and eight years ago.
The pattern of this purchase was based on the opportunity the club offered to the public to purchase shares following their financial challenges and inability to make it to the elite League in Portugal- the most prestigious of them all. Nneka Ede bought all 100 percent of the shares, and by that has completed the acquisitions of the Portugese side.
Ede is the second Nigerian to own a European club where the first is a Nigerian businessman from the south Western part of the country who is recognized as Kunle Soname; who purchased Clube Desportivo Feirense back in 2015.
