President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the Super Falcons of Nigeria on their victory over the Banyana Banyana of South Africa in the final match of the 11th Africa Women Cup of Nations AWCON, Ghana 2018.

The President, in a congratulatory message by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, expressed delight at the discipline and commitment exhibited by the country’s senior women football team despite the stiff resistance of their South African counterparts.

While noting that the Super Falcons had earlier qualified to represent Nigeria at the FIFA Women World Cup tournament in France next year, President Buhari described winning the AWCON for the third consecutive time and ninth overall, as the “icing on the cake.”

He, therefore, saluted the country’s female football ambassadors for doing their fatherland proud and showing clear dominance on the African continent.
