Eecutive Governor of Plateau State, Simon Bako Lalong has described the national football team, the Super Eagles as representative of the greatness that Nigeria can achieve as a united country.
The governor stated this in reaction to the national team booking a semi final ticket at the expense of South Africa in the on-going African Cup of Nations tournament taking place in Egypt.
Lalong who recently led a Federal Government delegation to Egypt to show support for the Eagles, enjoined the players to sustain the tempo of their brilliant performance in order to bring home the trophy.
He further called on all Nigerians to pray for the team as they seek victory over their remaining opponents and glory for the country.
