Russia 2018 W/Cup: Gov Emmanuel Congratulates Nigerians
Akwa Ibom State Governor, Mr Udom Emmanuel, has congratulated the Super Eagles of Nigeria for qualifying for a spot in the World Cup coming up in Russia next summer.
In a statement released by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Ekerete Udoh, the Governor was effusive in his praise of the team, “I salute the resilience and determination of our players. When the nation needed them to rise to the occasion, they did! That’s the spirit, the #Dakkada spirit.”
The Governor thanked Nigerians for keeping faith with the state, saying “We thank Nigerians for believing in our State, Akwa Ibom. We will continue to support the team as they get ready to make us proud next year in Russia”.
The Eagles, on Saturday evening at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium (Nest of Champions), pipped the Chipolopolo of Zambia by an Alex Iwobi lone strike, thereby qualifying for next year’s mundial with a match left to be played.
The team will face the Algeria at Algiers in the last match for the group.
