The President of Nigeria Football Federation NFF, Alhaji Aminu Maigari is still singing the praises of Cross River State Governor, Senator Liyel Imoke for standing by the Under-17 FIFA World Cup Champions, Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets throughout their preparation for the tournament that just ended in the United Arab Emirates, UAE.

Speaking aboard the Emirates Airline that brought the Governor, the Sports Minister and other sports officials including the NFF President back home, an elated Maigari said: “We thank God. This is a result of hard work and perseverance. I thank Mr President, Governor Liyel Imoke, the Honourable Sports Minister and all Nigerians who supported us on the way to this historic feat. We really appreciate the good gesture of everyone including that of Mr. President and several stakeholders including His Excellency, Senator Liyel Imoke, the Governor of Cross River State.

“I thank my colleagues on the board and the management staff.

“I thank the boys and their handlers for remaining focused throughout their assignment”.

Earlier, Senator Imoke said the people of Cross River State were humbled by this great achievement done them by the Golden Eaglets.

He expressed happiness for taking a decision to host and back the Eaglets throughout their two years preparation.

“We believed in them, invested in them and we are now reaping bountifully….Don’t forget that we still have an unfinished business this weekend in Calabar against the Ethiopians. After that we can put our celebration in top gear”.
