Kano Gov. Hosts Victorious Eaglets On Monday

Engineer (Dr.) Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, the Executive Governor of Kano
State would on Monday host players and officials of the victorious
Golden Eaglets who recently won a record fourth FIFA U-17 World Cup in the UAE.
The Governor’s gesture is coming on the heels of reception for the
team by President Goodluck Jonathan, as well as Senator Liyel Imoke
(CON), the Executive Governor of Cross River State and the Chief
Servant of Niger State, Dr. Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu shortly after the
team brought home the World Cup trophy amongst other laurels early in
Incidentally, Kano state has two star players in the team, defender
Zaharaddeen Bello and inspirational captain, Musa Muhammed, who
saluted Gov. Kwankwaso for inviting ‘Africa’s great warriors’ to his
home state.
“I’m so happy about the development that our Governor too is hosting
the Golden Eaglets for winning the World Cup”, said Musa, who sealed
the Golden Eaglets’ 3-0 win against Mexico in the final match with a
breathtaking goal from a free kick.
“We are really looking forward to have our teammates as well as our officials in Kano on Monday and we hope the Governor would make us happy”.
Governor Kwankwaso is regarded as one of the most sports-loving state
executives and early this year, he rewarded the players and officials
of Kano Pillars with the sum of N500,000 and N750,000 respectively for winning the 2012/13 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) title as well as a KIA Picanto car gift each for players and officials.
