Rangers last won a trophy in 1984, when the Club won the Nigeria Premier League. Since 1984 Rangers found it difficult to win a trophy in Nigeria.
Rangers’ achievement in 2016 could be attributed to the dexterity and leadership of His Excellency Rt. Hon.

The Ministry continues to hold small scale youth programmes in the State and sends some youth leaders to represent the State at the national level on issues that border on youth development.

Hopefully, in August 12 2017, the Ministry will hold her Youth Day Celebration, with the rest of the world. It is our fervent wish that from 7th September to 21st September, 2017, Enugu State Youths will participate in National Youth Games, scheduled to hold in Abuja. Efforts are been put in place for Enugu State Youths to win laurels at the event.
The Ministry has achieved quite a lot since May 29th 2015 and will continue to achieve great feats in Youth and Sports Development.
