Senate President, Bukola Saraki, on Sunday, described the Super Falcons of Nigeria, as an embodiment of the winning mentality and resilience of the country, against any challenge.
Saraki made this known in a statement signed by his Special Adviser, Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, which was made available to Post-Nigeria.
Saraki, while congratulating the Falcons, who in Ghana, on Saturday, defeated the Banyana, Banyana of South Africa, described the team as the real “Champions of Africa”.
He noted that even when the team lost their first game in the competition, many Nigerians remained solidly behind them, because they knew that like the true Nigerian team, they will always come out victorious, after what appeared to be the initial set-back.
The Senate President, who was highly elated by the 9th continental victory, said: “Champions of Africa! Congratulations to our Super Falcons, who have made the nation proud again. Congratulations on your well-deserved victory!”
The President of the Senate, also lauded the Coach, Technical crew, and the Players, for their sense of purpose, team spirit and determination, that saw them emerge as the African champions once more, at the 11th African Women Cup of Nations, AWCON, in Ghana.
He stated that the Senate in particular, and the National Assembly in general, would continue to support the development of sports in the country, through necessary legislation and adequate budgetary provisions.
