Eagles glad at Calabar land gift

10 March 2014, 12:45Israel Ojoko

Lagos - Super Eagles stand in captain, Vincent Enyeama has been full of praises for Cross River State government, particularly Governor Liyel Imoke for redeeming his promise to give members of the victorious Super Eagles team at the last Nations Cup in South Africa, one plot of land each in the state capital, Calabar.

Last week, NFF President, Aminu Maigari delivered the land papers fresh from Government House in Calabar to team administrator, Dayo Enebi Achor, who has since commenced their distribution to all the players and officials.

“We want to thank Governor Imoke and the good people of Cross River state for redeeming his pledge to us as a team, we promise that we will not disappoint him anytime we return to Calabar to play any game”, Enyeama said.

Meanwhile, team officials have reminded Africa richest man, Aliko Dangote of the $1million pledge he made to the team, which is yet to be redeemed due to the tight schedule of the business mogul.

“We understand the busy schedule of Dangote, we are just reminding him and his aides to help remind him”, Enyeama, was quoted as saying on the team’s behalf.

Also yet to redeem his pledge to the team, is Tony Elumelu, who promised the team $500,000, after their victory at AFCON 2013.

“It’s just a reminder to patriots who are very busy and may not have been prompted after they made their pledges, because the players are determined to bring more honours to fatherland at the forthcoming World Cup”, he declared.
