Nigeria’s Pillar Of Sports, Chief Donatus Agu Ejidike has charged the female national team, the Super Falcons to do everything possible to ensure they successfully retain the African Women Champions they won two years ago.
Speaking in a telephone chat from his Ilorin base, the businessman cum sports philanthropist who also expressed implicit confidence in the abilities of the coaching crew led by the irrepressible Florence Omagbemi to lead the defending champions to a successful defence of the AWC title, he however, tasked the team to be focused and disciplined if they must succeed.
“I believe in the talents of our girls to do us proud at the AWC in Cameroon, “Ejidike said. “And l equally trust the technical abilities of the coaches to lead the team to success in Cameroon”, he added.
“At this time of our national life, sports and particularly, football is one of the biggest tools in bringing succour and happiness to the people. Therefore, our girls should ensure that they make the nation proud.”
Ejidike, who doubles as the President of the Karate Federation of Nigeria, further admonished the NFF to give the team the necessary support and encouragement needed going into the championship.
