NFF President, Amaju Pinnick, has given his predecessor, Alhaji Aminu Maigari all the credits for Super Falcons triumph at the concluded African Women’s Championship, AWC in Namibia.
Amaju who doubles as Delta State Sports Commission chairman said Maigari is the proverbial hen that laid the golden eggs as far as the success of the national senior women’s team was concerned.
“It’s not an easy task to win the cup for a record seven times. All the credit must go to my predecessor, Alhaji Aminu Maigari.
”The Aminu Maigari-led board put together 90 per cent of the team’s preparation. But to me victory is not defined by trophies alone, it’s about creating a sustainable football culture and that’s our goal.
”We have the potentials, reach and passion and that’s what will drive this administration”,he said.
The Super Falcons defeated their Cameroon counterparts 2-0 on Saturday to win their record seventh AWC title in Windhoek, Namibia.
The victorious team was received by Nigeria President, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan at the Presidential Villa, Aso Rock, Abuja on Wednesday night.
