President Goodluck Jonathan will receive the victorious African women champions Super Falcons at the federal executive council meeting on Wednesday.

Minister of sports and chairman of National Sports Commission Tammy Danagogo disclosed this when he met with the Super Falcons before they beat the Lionesses of Cameroon 2-0 in the final of the African Women Championship.

According to the minister, a proposal has been sent to Mr. President to receive the team at FEC meeting on Wednesday noting that he is quite sure Mr. President will be looking forward to meet the Falcons on their return as he praised the girls for doing Nigeria proud in Namibia.

” I know it is not just going to be a presidential hand shake alone because he likes to appreciate those who do the country proud in any sector of national endeavour. Just get the job done and leave the rest” the minister stated

The Falcons have won the AWC a record seventh time and will play at next year’s World Cup in Canada.
