Eagles get ambassadorial support for Brazil WC

22 January 2014, 19:04Israel Ojoko

Abuja - Newly-appointed Ambassador of Nigeria to Brazil, His Excellency Adamu Emozozo has pledged that the Embassy of Nigeria in that country will give every needed diplomatic support to the Super Eagles to make a big impact at the 20th FIFA World Cup finals.

Emozozo, who has concurrent accreditation to Paraguay and Bolivia, replaces Ambassador Victor Okoedion, who was recently posted to another country.

Speaking during a visit to Nigeria Football Federation President, Aminu Maigari at the Glass House, Emozozo declared that while the Embassy would facilitate several things in the diplomatic sector, it would not interfere with technical and administrative issues that would be entirely left to the NFF.

“I am coming into this position at a time that Brazil is staging several major events, including the FIFA World Cup this year and the Olympic Games in 2016. While carrying out the transformation agenda, we are also committed to seeing that our football continues to rise”, he said in a statement.

“It is a great thing that our football teams have been going from one success to the other. I believe our Super Eagles can perform well at the FIFA World Cup finals if we all work together.”

The NFF President congratulated the new Ambassador and promised that the NFF would work in tandem with the Embassy to make things much easier for the Super Eagles and the entire Nigeria delegation to the World Cup finals.
