President of the Senate Senator David Mark on Monday commended the Flying Eagles of Nigeria over their victory at the 2015 African Youth Championships in Senegal on Sunday.
The NIGERIA under 20 national team defeated host Senegal by a lone goal at the 45,000 capacity Leopold Sedar Senghor Stadium in Dakar on Sunday to win the trophy for the 7th time.
In a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Paul Mumeh, Senator Mark said the NIGERIAN lads’ superlative performance at the tournament has further “stamped our authority as a leading soccer nation in Africa.”
He specifically praised the Garba Manu led boys for rising up to the occasion when it mattered.
He said: ” This victory coming at this critical moment of the 2015 general elections is a reassurance that the forthcoming elections would be successful. The team spirit displayed by our boys at the championship is an attribute all NIGERIANS must emulate.
“Together, we can address our challenges if we resolve to work as one people with a common purpose.”
He noted that the victorious Flying Eagles deserves “our commendation and rewards. They are our heroes. They have rekindled our hope and pride.”
He accordingly reminded the federal government of the need to do the needful to reward the Flying Eagles to serve as an elixir for future laurel for the nation.
"They called Goodluck Jonathan, who gave you YouWIN and SURE-P, and PRESSID Scholarships clueless. So what do we call APC that gives you wheelbarrow? They said GEJ was tribalistic yet his NSA, CDS, IGP, CNS, CGP and minister of defense were from the North. So what do we say of President Muhammadu Buhari whose DG DSS is from his own hometown and whose Minister of Defense, Chief of Army Staff, Chief of Air Staff, NSA, IGP, CGP, CGI, CGP are all from his Northern Region? You see, no matter how far falsehood has travelled, it must eventually be overtaken by truth!"
