Dangote, Rabiu reward Super Falcons as Presidency welcome team back home



It has been reported that Nigerian billionaires, Aliko Dangote and Abdulsamad Rabiu have financially rewarded the victorious Super Falcons for winning the African Women Nations Cup trophy.

In the same vein, the Chief of Staff to the President and Commander-In-Chief of the Federal Republic, President Muhammadu Buhari (GCFR), Alhaji Abba Kyari on Sunday evening received the team.

Nine –time African champions, Super Falcons, flew into the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport minutes before 4pm, aboard an ASKY Airline flight from Accra, and were received by Alhaji Kyari, NFF General Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi, as well as other officials of the NFF.

On Sunday, at the Accra Sports Stadium, the Falcons defeated the South African Banyana Banyana side 4-3 on penalties after a scoreless 120 minutes, to lift the top African women football trophy for the third successive time and ninth time overall.

Holding aloft the Women AFCON trophy, the Falcons were wildly cheered by Nigerians at the airport and responded gracefully before they entered the bus that conveyed them to their hotel in the Federal Capital.

At the Starview Hotel, Alhaji Kyari commended the girls for a job well done, praising them for their tenacity, energy, determination and patriotic fervour.

“On behalf of Mr. President, who is not in the country at the moment, we say welcome and well done to you. We are proud of you and your representation of the country. Infact, as we were leaving the airport, two eminent Nigerians called and donated the sum of N50million and N25 million respectively to your team. Please rest very well. We will get back to you with the activities lined up for you in the coming days.”

Also at the hotel to receive the Super Falcons was the Honourable Minister for Women Affairs, Hajiya Aisha Abubakar.

General Secretary of the Nigeria Football Federation, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi, said: “On behalf of the leadership of the NFF, we are grateful for the support from the Nigerian Government which has seen the team excel at the Cup of Nations. The girls have promised to do their best to represent the country very well at the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup.”

Education should be free at all levels in Nigeria.

Dangote can do it, the man that built the largest Church Auditorium in the world can do it, ONE PERSON CAN DO IT.

What a waste of land called a country.

They really tried... They played their hearts out. Our football wasn't really the best at the competition, but the tenacity and patriotism shown by them are some of the things our super eagles can't boast of. Chikwelu (c) and the other girl with dyed hair were just everywhere making timely markings, Onome Ebi was rock solid. Oluchi was phenomenal. In fact they all tried, but we can't rest now, there is much work to do before next year's WC in France.
