NFF Sends Birthday Wishes To Jonathan

President of Nigeria Football Federation, Alhaji Aminu Maigari has
congratulated President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, GCFR, on his 56th
birthday, saying the Nigeria leader’s support and encouragement for
Nigeria football is the reason for the several successes recorded in
the outgoing year.
Nigeria won the African Cup of Nations and the FIFA U-17 World Cup,
while the Super Eagles easily grabbed a 2014 FIFA World Cup ticket and the Eagles Team B reached the African Nations Championship for the first time, among other accomplishments.
But Maigari contended that these strides would not have been possible without the active support of President Jonathan.
“The Nigeria Football Federation and the entire Nigeria football
family wishes Mr. President long life, prosperity and many more years
of active support and love for Nigeria football. We are enamoured by
his keen interest in the development of the Nigeria game.
“Mr. President’s special interest in the development of Nigerian
football is matched by his commitment to providing the resources for
our National Teams to excel internationally and his encouragement of
our players through cash and other rewards after impressive outings,”
Maigari said.
President Jonathan has personally visited training sessions of the
Super Eagles at least on two occasions in the past 15 months,
inspiring the boys to qualify for the 2013 African Cup of Nations
(which they won in South Africa) and also the 2014 FIFA World Cup,
appearing at team’s only training session in Addis Ababa on the eve of a vital 2-1 away win in the final elimination fixture.
Maigari added: “Our leader is truly transforming Nigeria football, nay Nigeria sports, and we pray for several more years ahead for him to take our sports to higher heights.”
