Fubara gives Super Eagles’ Nwabali N20m

Rivers State Governor, Sir. Siminalayi Fubara, has gifted the Super Eagles’ Goalkeeper, Stanley Nwabali, with N20million saying he made Rivers proud at the just-concluded African Cup of Nations (AFCON).

 

The governor also conferred on the Goalkeeper the state honour of Distinguished Service Star of Rivers State (DSSRS).

Fubara in a statement signed by his Special Assistant, Media, Boniface Onyedi, said his administration would sustain purposeful governance and administrative efficiency.

The governor, who hosted Nwabali and the Rivers Hoopers Basketball Team at Government House in Port Harcourt said his focus was to create the enabling environment for people to enhance the global perception of Rivers.

The governor particularly commended the Rivers born Nwabali for his excellent goalkeeping in the Super Eagles team.

He said: “I want to join the great and wonderful people of Rivers State to congratulate you, our brother Stanley Nwabali and our wonderful team. We are here again in just about four months after your winning a local trophy.

“Today, you have brought a national trophy. So, when people say or talk behind to ask what we are doing, we are achieving those things that are not, maybe, seen physically but they give joy and fulfilment.

“If we have not encouraged you in a way that motivated you, you won’t be where you are. So, it is part of purposeful governance, administrative efficiency. So, I want to thank you and assure you that we will continue to do our best.”

Fubara urged Rivers people to continue to consciously do positive things that would promote the state and attract honour.

For emerging as champions in the Louis Edem National league competition, Governor Fubara gifted N50m to the Rivers Hoopers Basketball Team.

Rivers State Commissioner for Sports, Christopher Green applauded Fubara for his support that motivated the Basketball Team to clinch the national League trophy as champions.

Also speaking, a former Commissioner for Justice and one-time Super Eagles player, Chief Adokiye Amiesimaka, while recognizing the impact of sports development in the state, commended the purposeful leadership of Fubara.
