Governor Ifeanyi Okowa has showered encomiums on the Super Falcons of Nigeria on their victory over the Bayana Bayana of South Africa in the final match of the 11th Africa Women Cup of Nations (AWCON), Ghana 2018.

In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Charles Aniagwu, on Sunday, the governor expressed delight at the discipline and commitment exhibited by the Super Falcons despite the pressure and stiff competition from their South African counterparts.

“I commend the Falcons for their resilience and determination. They have made us proud and it is my hope that they will consolidate on this victory to represent Nigeria effectively at the FIFA Women World Cup tournament in France next year”.

“This victory no doubt has restored our national pride and confidence as the most successful team in the tournament having won the Africa Women’s Cup of Nations title for a record ninth out of 11 times”.

In a related development, Governor Okowa also congratulated President of the NFF, Amaju Pinnick as he turned 45 years on Saturday December 1, 2018.

He noted that Pinnick’s firm belief in revolutionising football administration in Nigeria has paid off in his achievements since he was first elected as NFF President in 2014.
