Governor Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa of Delta State has rewarded the Super Eagles following victories in their 2019 AFCON qualifying match against Seychelles and the friendly against seven-time African champions Egypt.
The sports-loving governor presented the sum of $10,000 to head coach Gernot Rohr and another $50,000 to the team on Tuesday.
This comes after Governor Okowa rewarded the team following their qualification for the 2019 AFCON with the 1-1 draw against South Africa in Johannesburg in November 2018.
Captain Ahmed Musa, who, was lauded for promptly fulfilling his promise of N1million-a-goal to the Olympic Eagles by sending the team N4million on Monday evening immediately after their 4-0 win over Libya, thanked Governor Okowa for his kind gestures and support to the team, other National Teams and Nigerian Football generally.
At its meeting on Monday, the NFF Executive Committee hailed Delta State’s number one citizen and his administration for the full sponsorship of the Super Eagles’ two matches, as well as taking care of the U23 AFCON qualifier between Nigeria and Libya.
