Alhaji Aminu Maigari

The National Youth Council of Nigeria has applauded the President of Nigeria Football Federation, Alhaji Aminu Maigari, for the superlative performances of all the National Teams since the beginning of this year.

It would be recalled that in February, the Super Eagles lifted the Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa, for the first time in 19 years and for only the third time that Nigeria would emerge victorious in the competition?s 56-year history.

In March, the Flying Eagles finished third at the 12th African Youth Championship in Algeria to qualify as one of Africa?s flag-bearers at the FIFA U-20 World Cup Turkey 2013, and last month, the Golden Eaglets finished as runners-up at the 10th CAF U-17 Championship in Morocco, also qualifying as one of Africa?s representatives at the FIFA U-17 World Cup UAE 2013.

In the letter, signed by Chike Favour who heads the Directorate of Sports at NYCN, the Council eulogized Maigari thus: ?We at the National Youth Council of Nigeria attribute this remarkable feat to your doggedness and sincere commitment to the development of football in Nigeria, that was clearly demonstrated when you maintained zero tolerance in the technical crew?s selection of the team.?

The National Youth Council of Nigeria, an umbrella body that coordinates and supervises the activities of all youth organizations in Nigeria under the executive supervision of the Federal Ministry of Youth Development, is an affiliate of Pan-African Youth Union and World Assembly of Youths.
