Governor Sullivan Chime of Enugu State has congratulated Nigeria’s national football team the Super Eagles over its triumph at the recently concluded African Nations Cup competition saying it signaled the country’s recovery and determination to restore herself to the path of glory.
The Governor who stated this in a message signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Chukwudi Achife, said the commitment showed by the Super Eagles and the technical crew to lift the coveted trophy despite the sceptism of many citizens, was remarkable and worthy of emulation.
He commended President Goodluck Jonathan for his exceptional support for the team adding that the interest he showed in the competition and in the affairs of the squad served as as huge source of inspiration for the players.
Governor Chime urged the team’s handlers, the players and the Sports Ministry to build upon the success in order to achieve greater goals in future more especially qualification and successful outing at the 2014 World Cup.
