It all began as mere office banter as we connected with the international theme #UNSTOPABLE as we remembered the selfless contribution of Red Cross volunteers all through the early stages of the COVID-19. pandemic. Just a few whispers at first, but then it gathered steam. It was only supposed to be a friendly/novelty match between the FCT branch of the Nigerian Red Cross Branch and the Headquarters staff to mark World Red Cross Day.
No big deal.
But by the morning of Saturday, the 8th of May when I got to the Astroturf in Zone 1, Wuse, Abuja, what I saw beat my imagination.
