Bauchi State Governor Isa Yuguda has named a major street in Bauchi after NFF boss Aminu Maigari to mark Nigeria’s 2013 AFCON success.
“The Government and people of Bauchi State are delighted with the Super Eagles triumph at the Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa,” Yuguda said when he received the AFCON trophy at the Government House in Bauchi.
“The success was certainly the result of hard work, as well as team-work, determination and dedication.
“We are all very proud of the team, as we are sure all other Nigerians are proud of the team.
“I wish to recommend to the three arms of government, executive, judiciary and legislature, the same spirit of team-work, because that is the surest route to success.”
Governor Yuguda also noted that the triumph was a pointer to the bounty harvests that could be derived from peace and unity.
Present at the occasion were members of the Bauchi State Executive Council; NFF President, Aminu Maigari; NFF executive committee member, Felix Anyansi-Agwu; NFF general secretary, Musa Amadu and Eagles assistant coach Daniel Amokachi.
