The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, played host to some team members of Super Falcons who had paid him a visit.
The female footballers had also paid a visit to the First Lady Oluremi Tinubu.
Taking to his X (formerly Twitter) handle, the governor tweeted:
Honoured to have received some team members of our remarkable Super Falcons at the Lagos House in Marina earlier today.
Asisat Oshoala who came in company of Rasheedat Ajibade and Monday Gift, came to pay us a courtesy visit.
The Super Falcons’ incredible run at the FIFA Women’s World Cup has ignited a new era of enthusiasm for women’s football in Nigeria.
Their achievements on the field and the unity they brought to our nation are truly remarkable. We will continue to empower and encourage our female athletes, and also work towards a brighter future for women’s football in Nigeria.
A big thank you to these amazing ladies for their visit, and for the gifts of the clubs jerseys.
