Kuejubola’s football technical expertise over the years has been very useful to the various top women’s league clubs in Nigeria and the national teams, as he regularly advised the teams’ technical bench on tactical matters which had been invaluable.

“Now, I am here to do just that for Royal Queens of Warri, whose management had showed seriousness in the business of running women’s football clubs in Nigeria.

“They are also particular about me helping to bring back the glory days of women’s football to Warri and Delta state in general, as it was the case in the era of Ufuoma Babes.

“The Nigerian Women Football League will generally witness marked differences in the premier League this time around with Royal Queens.
“The Queens will surely put up a respectable performance and make a point that women’s football is back in Warri. After Babes, now we have the Queens.
