Governor Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers State on Friday gifted Super Eagles star goalkeeper Stanley Nwabali N20m and state honour for his outstanding performance in the just concluded African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Ivory Coast.

Fubara, who made the gift announcement, also gave the Super Eagles’ crew N30m for making the country proud in the AFCON.

He said his administration will sustain purposeful governance and administrative efficiency because they are helping the state’s people to engage in ventures that bring honour.

Fubara 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 you won a local trophy.

“Today, you have brought a national trophy. So, when people say or talk behind us 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 and administrative efficiency.

“So, I want to thank you and assure you that we will continue to do our best.”

He urged the people of Rivers to continue to do great things that will promote the state and attract honour.

Christopher Green, the state Commissioner for Sports, extolled Governor Fubara for his support that motivated the Rivers Hoopers Basketball Team to win the national league trophy as champions.
