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
“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
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”,
