Newly elected President of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick, has urged the Super Falcons to welcome him into office by winning the African Women Championship (AWC) trophy in Namibia later this month.
Pinnick gave this charge when he visited Falcons in training at the FIFA Goal Project Pitch, Abuja.
He told the girls that winning the trophy will be an added feather to his cap as his involvement now is on a different level as the President NFF.
“This is the dawn of a new beginning so I urge you girls to go to Namibia and conquer Africa, I want you girls to go and do this country proud”
“President Goodluck Jonathan has done so well in sports in this country so we must his Transformation Agenda in sports by winning this trophy. I want to proudly as the NFF President lead you guys to the Presidential lounge where you will be honored and accorded your pride of place after winning the trophy.”
“But please make sure that you think success when you are playing, think Nigeria and whatever you need will be given to you” admonished Pinnick.
NFF President was accompanied on the visit by newly elected Vice President, Seyi Akinwunmi; Board Member, Felix Anyansi-Agwu; Director of Competitions, Sanusi Mohammed and Director Technical, Emmanuel Ikpeme.
The Super Falcons, who are record six-time winners of the tournament, open their account in Namibia against the giant-killing Ivorians, who edged holders Equatorial Guinea in the qualifiers.
