President Bola Tinubu, on Tuesday, rewarded the Super Eagles
of Nigeria with a national award (Member of the Order of the Niger, MON) flats
in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, and piece of land.


President Tinubu made the pronouncement when he received the
players and officials of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) at the Council
Chamber, Presidential Villa, Abuja.


The delegation is led by the Minister of Sports Development,
Senator John Owan Enoh.


The Super Eagles finished as runners-up in the just
concluded Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), hosted by Côte d’Ivoire.


All the team members, clad in green attire, and officials
were in attendance, including Alex Iwobi, who had faced cyber attacks following
Nigeria’s loss to Cote d’Ivoire at the final of the just concluded African Cup
of Nations.


In a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and
Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, President Tinubu commended the team, the coach, the
crew, and the entire management team for their hard work, assiduity, and
sacrifice to come this far in the tournament, acknowledging the hurdles they
consistently surpassed with steadily improving performance as they pulled
through to the finals.


The President had urged Nigerians to be of good cheer,
emphasising that we won a great victory in the hearts of Africa and the world
with our grit, rigour, and determination in the field of play.


“Let this passing event not dispirit us but bring us
together to work harder. We are a great nation bound as one by the
green-white-green banner of resilience, joy, hope, duty, and untiring love.


“To those cherished Nigerian youths expressing their gifts
in communities, drawing lines in the sand as they play football in their humble
rectangles of play, you can be our heroes tomorrow, do not relent in your
pursuit. My administration is here to make dreams come true,” the president
