November 8, 2013

Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has congratulated  Nigerians on the victory of the Golden Eaglets at the FIFA  Under-17 World Cup final on Saturday.

Fayemi, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Olayinka Oyebode, said  winning the Cup for an unprecedented fourth time has further confirmed Nigeria’s position as a soccer world power and the  leading light of Africa.

The Governor saluted the courage, determination and commitment  of the players and officials of the team for working hard to  achieve this victory for the country which he noted is going
through a difficult phase in its history.

Fayemi praised the Eaglets for proving themselves  good  ambassadors of Nigeria and defending the colours of their  country at a global championship.
He commended the boys for displaying uncommon skills and  dexterity and approaching each match with seriousness and  tactical discipline till the Cup was won.

The Governor urged the nation’s football authorities to  ensure that the boys are kept together to represent the  country at higher global tournaments.

Fayemi charged the senior national team, the Super Eagles,  to ensure qualification for next year’s World Cup in Brazil  as a further proof of Nigeria’s eminent place in World  football.

“On behalf of the government and good people of Ekiti State, we say a big thank you to these worthy ambassador and look forward to seeing our football authorities build on this success to earn a permanent top position in international football.”
