Sunday, September 30, 2018, shall forever be remembered as the darkest day in the annals of the Pride and Passion Family [Karela United Football Club] because we lost Our Executive Director [Chief Administrative Director], Bankroller, Chief Scout, Humanitarian, a Legal Luminary, a Jewel and above all the Principal Passioner.
Senator Brigidi always reiterated that with Commitment, Unity and Passion [CUP], Karela United Football Club will pass the test of time and become a force to be reckoned within the Ghana Premier League and the Africa Continent and his motivational messages propelled all units within the Passion Family including the Patrons, Board of Trustees, Management Team, Technical Crew, Playing Body and our teeming supporters and fans to work extra hard for our dear Club.
Karela United’s glorious history as 2016/17 Division One League [Zone II Champions] and as a New Campaigner in the 2017/18 Ghana Premier League [3rd position after 15 Matches] was hugely facilitated by only one man and his name was Senator Dr. David ‘‘Kabenla Saigha’’ Brigidi. We indeed feel a very deep sense of loss but your spirit and character will forever live on. Ghana Football has lost one of the most practical and respected administrators of all times.
Senator’s captivating smile, appealing figure, engaging personality and interesting character won for him a very great veneration from many a football administrator from both Division One and Premier League Clubs. You made an immense contribution to the game of football and enriched the lives of everyone that came into contact with a colossus like you. You are a true gentleman whose immortality, in the chronicles of Karela United Football Club, Nzema Western Region and Ghana Football, is indubitably assured.
