It's disheartening that Ankpa Leopards has been left in the state of oblivion. Once upon a time, Ankpa Leopard was one of the greatest football club in kogi state. They competed with the topflight clubs like Lobbi star of Markurdi and Babanawa football club, the aforementioned clubs are among the best clubs in the north central Nigeria over a decade ago.

Indubitably, the ancient town of Ankpa is the nave or the hub of soccer in the present day kogi state, the reason I confidently make this proclamation is because I grown up in Ankpa and majority of people there are soccer loving people.   Back in those days, Ankpa local government council generated a lot of revenue from sport precisely soccer, they organized numerous football tournaments and some clubs across Ankpa and even other parts of the state usually come and participated, Ankpa Leopards officials normally scouted players from the competition and selects potential players for the team. 

To further back up my claim that Ankpa is the nave of the game of soccer in kogi state, I will bring to your knowledge that Ankpa Leopards has hosted the erstwhile champion of African clubs football, Eyinba football club of Abba at Ankpa township stadium in one or two occasions. Also, I was told on this space  sometimes ago by elder Faruk Adejoh-Audu that Ankpa Leopards defeated Nigerian supper eagles in 1985 or thereabouts.

The dormancy of Ankpa Leopard is a shameful thing to the people of Ankpa because majority of us are soccer aficionados. Ankpa Leopard is our pride and must be revived.

In the light of all these, I will call the attentions of our elected representatives and governments functionaries to please come to our aid and bring our darling Leopard back to life. 

Musa Idris (Oando) the kogi state Honorable commissioner for youth and sports development, please come to our aid and #bringBackAnkpaLeopards

Hon. Abdullahi Ibrahim Halims, member representing Ankpa, Olamaboro and Omala federal constituency, come to our aid and #BringBackAnkpaLeopards. 

Hon. Ahmed Mohammed, member representing Ankpa1 state constituency in kogi state House of Assembly, help us #BringBackAnkpaLeopards. 

To all the soccer loving people from Ankpa, let's join this campaign on this platforms with the hashtag #BringBackAnkpaLeopards.
