AGovernor of DeltaState, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan has been celebrating the exploits of Warri Wolves star, Sunday Mba at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations tournament that ended last night with Nigeria emerging as the new African kings.
Mba’s 40th minute solitary strike gave Nigeria the edge over hard-fighting Burkina Faso in a keenly contested final match played at the Soccer City Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Reacting to the victory, Uduaghan said, “Mba is our hero. He made all the difference and his contributions to the success of the team is instructive.
“It is a call to all of us to continue investing in our local league. It also shows that we must respect our local players.”
Uduaghan who was speaking from outside the country said, “Mba has done Warri Wolves and the entire Nigeria proud and I am proud of him.
“It is good to be a Nigerian. The victory of the Super Eagles at the Nations Cup and Mba’s contributions in particular, has reinforced our belief in the local league and a motivation for us to continue to invest in our local football.”
