Madumere hails Super Eagles

The Deputy Governor of Imo State, Prince Eze Madumere has congratulated the Super Eagles of Nigeria for pecking down Chipolopolo of Zambia in a tension-soaked world cup qualifying cracker last weekend.
Responding to questions from newsmen, at Owerri West local government of Imo State shortly after he performed the kick-off for Owerri West Unity Cup sponsored by Azuatalam Better Life Foundation, Prince Madumere described Eagles’ one goal to nil defeat against their Zambian counterparts as resounding, having launched Nigeria to participate in 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Prince Madumere said the importance of Eagles will also have impacted on the unity of Nigeria, saying that sports will continue to play a vital role in the unity of the country.
He, therefore, called on well-meaning Nigerians to invest in sports at the grassroots since its value chain is huge. He averred that beyond taking sports as a career line, it also helps to shield the youth from engaging in crime and other social vices.
He wondered why some sections of Nigeria have turned their eyes away from the gains in Nigeria’s diversity. His words: “With all the brouhaha in the polity, yet when it comes to the game of football, we tend to forget all ethnic, tribal and sectional sentiments.”
He, therefore, called on Nigerian leaders to see the game of football as a workable model in Nigerian project, which he said is possible if only Nigerians can be more patriotic, selfless and impartial.
