Glo boss gives Eagles USD1m

Dr. Mike Adenuga Jr., Chairman of Globacom, has splashed USD1million (about N160 million) on the victorious Super Eagles for winning the 29th African Cup of Nations tournament which ended on Sunday in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The Chief Coach of the team, Stephen Okechukwu Keshi has also been promised a befitting official car and accommodation from the billionaire industrialist.

Dr. Adenuga announced the package shortly after the team's 1-0 victory over Burkina Faso's Stallions at FNB Stadium in Johannesburg on Sunday. Dr. Adenuga has been flying in and out during the African Cup of Nations with senior members of Globacom to give the Super Eagles moral support in their quest to conquer Africa.

Dr. Adenuga commended the Super Eagles and the technical team for winning the African Cup of Nations and restoring Nigeria's glory in African Football.

He described the victory as "well deserved". "Your resilient spirit was evident in all the matches you played, coupled with the team work. The highly entertaining football the boys played is a welcome breath of fresh air. You have brought joy to Nigerians," said Dr. Adenuga.

He also commended Keshi for equalling Egypt's El- Gohari's record by emerging as the second African to win the African Cup of Nations as a player and coach.

Dr. Adenuga also promised that Glo will sponsor the Super Eagles' trip to the World Confederation Cup in June where they will play against top football nations like current World Cup champion, Spain and Uruguay.

As the major sponsor of the Super Eagles and official telecoms partner of the Nigerian Football Federation for the past 10 years, Globacom has stood solidly behind the Super Eagles. In the last 3 years, Globacom has also increased its support for the national teams, raising its sponsorship fee to N350m per annum.
