Kano governor to host Golden Eaglets

02 December 2013, 11:12Israel Ojoko

Kano - Players and officials of the victorious Golden Eaglets will be hosted at a reception by governor of Kano state, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso on Monday.

The Golden Eaglets succeeded against all odds to conquer the world at the 2013 FIFA U17 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates in November.

The Governor’s gesture comes on the heels of a reception for the team by President Goodluck Jonathan as well as Senator Liyel Imoke (CON), the Executive Governor of Cross River State and the Chief Servant of Niger State, Dr. Mu'azu Babangida Aliyu shortly after the team brought home the World Cup trophy amongst other laurels early in November.

Incidentally, Kano state has two star players in the team, defender Zaharaddeen Bello and inspirational captain, Musa Muhammed, who saluted Kwankwaso for inviting ‘Africa’s great warriors’ to his home state.

Kwankwaso is regarded as one of the most sports-loving state executives. Earlier this year, he rewarded the players and officials of Kano Pillars with the sum of N500,000 and N750,000 respectively for winning the 2012/13 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) title as well as a KIA Picanto for each player and official.
