Ridwan has since returned to Nigeria to team up with MFM FC but is yet to make his debut for the club this season.


In a chat with, the Center half explained why he’s yet to feature in a game for the Tony Bolus side.



“Nothing really, every player has his own time and surely my time will come and I’m eagerly waiting for the opportunity to play,” he told


His elder brother Sikiru was an household name in the NPFL, before moving to North Africa.


He said he’s proud of what his brother achieved, but he’s definitely writing his own story.


“You know he was a well know goal poacher before he left the NPFL for greener pastures, ” he told


“Not at all he has done well flying the flag high and making a name for himself and I believe I’m on the right track too and he’s been really helpful sharing ideas about league,” he said.


Ridwan will be hoping to make his Nigerian top flight league bow today when MFM FC trade tackles with Dakkada FC.
