Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, PDP, Delta North has hailed the Nigerian Super Eagles on their victory in the African Cup of Nations tournament saying they point to the renaissance of the Nigerian spirit.
Senator Okowa especially brought out for praise the significance of the victory on the team coach and former captain of the team, Stephen Keshi who he said has becoming a darling to all elements in his Delta North constituency.
“The Super Eagles have lifted the morale and hearts of all Nigerians involved in productive engagements whether business, politics, entertainment or sports. The can-do spirit that was demonstrated by the players and coach despite the reported constraints will no doubt encourage many others towards excellence in their own endeavours.”
“I am particularly moved by the record attained by our own brother, Stephen Keshi who has entered the record books as the first indigenous coach to lift the trophy and the second person in Africa to win the cup as player and coach.”
“Keshi has taught us that many better things indeed will also flow from our Delta State .”
