Buhari salutes victorious Golden Eaglets
By; SUNDAY ODE, Abuja
President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday saluted the Golden Eaglets for their victory over Mali to clinch the Under-17 FIFA World Cup in Chile.
A statement by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina said Buhari believed that by their triumph in Chile, the Golden Eaglets had shown the world that the indomitable Nigerian spirit was alive and waxing stronger.
“For the President, the Golden Eaglets’ latest victory on the global stage is an affirmation of the significant progress Nigeria is now making towards positively redefining and rediscovering its potential for greatness in the comity of nations.
“President Buhari applauds the exemplary zeal, determination, commitment, hard work, patriotism and soccer artistry which the youthful Golden Eaglets put on display throughout the tournament to win the championship for a record fifth time,” the statement noted.
The President, according to the statement, noted with delight that the Golden Eaglets not only won the coveted Under-17 FIFA World Cup, but were also bringing home highly-valued individual awards such as the Golden Boot won by Victor Osimhen for being the tournament’s highest goal scorer and the Golden Ball, won by the team captain, Kelechi Nwakali for being the best player.
It said President Buhari trusted that if all other Nigerians imbibed and exhibited the doggedness, determination and patriotism displayed by their youthful compatriots in Chile, Nigeria would surely make faster progress towards becoming the strong, united, peaceful, secure and prosperous nation envisioned by its people.
The President joined other proud Nigerians in awaiting the Golden Eaglets triumphant return to a heroes’ welcome from a joyous and grateful nation, the statement added.
