President Bola Tinubu on Tuesday honoured each player and official of the Nigerian Super Eagles with the Member of the Order of the Niger national award for securing the silver medal at the just-concluded 2023 Africa Nations Cup.
“‘It is not easy to absorb a loss, particularly when the expectations are high. But you have demonstrated sportsmanship, resilience and team spirit throughout the tournament,” said Tinubu as he decorated each team member with MON lapel pins at a reception in their honour at the Aso Rock Villa, Abuja.
He also announced the donation of a flat and a plot of land to each of them even as the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, immediately distributed forms for land allocation to each player at a yet-to-be-disclosed location.
Tuesday’s encounter comes barely 48 hours after the Super Eagles unsuccessfully battled for the top spot at the 2024 Africa Cup of Nations against the host country, Côte d’Ivoire.
