President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the Nigeria’s Super Falcons on their victory over the senior female football team of Cameroon on Saturday at the final game of the women’s Africa Cup of Nations in Yaounde.

The president, in a statement yesterday by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity Mr Femi Adesina, described the victory over the Indomitable Lionesses as “very sweet and well-deserved.”

Buhari particularly commended the Nigerian women for their “indomitable spirit, resilience and team work” which, he said, spurred them to victory in spite of a vociferous home crowd.

The president noted that the Nigerian team achieved “this feat of being African champions for the 8th time”; a development he said had lifted the spirits of sports-loving Nigerians.

The Super Falcons defeated their Cameroonian counterpart 1-0 in Younde to lift the trophy for the eight time.
