Mr Godwin Emefiele, the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, has guaranteed the Super Eagles of the Federal Government’s support in their bid for a fourth Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) championship in Cameroon.
Emefiele provided the guarantee during a visit to the squad in Garoua, Cameroon, with senior Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) officials.
The CBN governor praised the Super Eagles’ players and staff for their efforts and urged them to remain patriotic.
“You will continue to be rewarded, but most importantly, you should see this outing as service to the nation.
I can assure you that everything is being done by the government to make Nigerian youths happy.
“Continue to make Nigerians happy just as you have done, members of government delegation are always present and ready to give you all the support,” he said.
Earlier, NFF President Amaju Pinnick thanked the CBN governor and his delegation for the visit, with a pledge to always make the nation proud.
“We indeed thank the extremely passionate Super Eagles lover, a member of the Presidential delegation and the dynamic CBN Governor Mr Godwin Emiefele who not only galvanised the private sector to support the Super Eagles in the last AFCON that we came third but doing it again in grand style.
“Sir, we doff our hearts. The NFF and Super Eagles are grateful for always being there for us,” he said.
The Super Eagles qualified for the round of 16 in style after topping group D with maximum points and will now face Tunisia on Sunday
