Presenting the items on behalf of Baba Rahman, Northern Regional Football Association Chairman, Alhaji Abu Hassan Rhyzo tasked the technical team to make good use of the kind gesture demonstrated by Baba.
Accompanying the Baba Rahman team was his elder brother, Alhaji Salifu Rahman, who reiterated Baba’s commitment to ensuring the Pride of the North maintain their Premier League status, said the philanthropic gesture by the former Kotoko player, was a token to help prepare RTU going into the new season.
