The Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu has congratulated the FIFA Under the Golden Eaglets of Nigeria on their victorious outing in FIFA Under 17 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates.
Senator Ekweremadu who described the Eaglets display as “phenomenal, entertaining, and near perfect” said the trophy was a centenary gift Nigerians would never forget in a hurry.
He said: “I am indeed proud of these boys for this superlative and emphatic victory. But beyond the euphoria that comes with it, I believe that this is God reminding us through these young men that a united and one-minded Nigeria where everyone is given the opportunity to do what he or she knows best to do without recourse to nepotism, ethno-religious discrimination, and political manipulations is simply unstoppable.
“It has been quite long we saw a thing like this and for me it is a Centenary gift that calls for sober reflections on what and where we ought to be as a nation”
He urged all Nigerians to roll out the drum to celebrate the boys and fatherland.
