Buhari congratulates African football player of the year, Asisat Oshoala
President Muhammadu Buhari has felicitated with Nigerian football star, Asisat Lamina Oshoala, for winning the CAF Women’s African Football Player of the Year.
The President, in a statement by the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, also congratulated members of the Falcon’s team and all football lovers for the most deserved honour.
The honour, he said, will naturally translate into more responsibilities for exploits on the football field, and her country.
The President commended the strength, dexterity and focus Oshoala has displayed, working really hard from an early age to represent Nigeria in international tournaments before she was 20 years, and always showcasing her skills in her clubs.
President Buhari believed that the footballer’s many awards and achievements, which includes winning the CAF award for the third time, at such age clearly demonstrates that she always rises to the occasion as a professional, and deserves continental recognitions.
