Some members of the Super Falcons paid a visit to Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Tuesday at the Lagos House in Marina.
Those who visited the governor include Asisat Oshoala, Rasheedat Ajibade and Gift Monday. All three of them play in the forward position for the Super Falcons.
The footballers presented to Sanwo-Olu their club jerseys as gifts.
Sanwo-Olu shared photos of their visit on social media, saying he was honoured to have them.
“Honoured to have received some team members of our remarkable Super Falcons at the Lagos House in Marina earlier today,” he wrote.
“Asisat Oshoala, Rasheedat Ajibade and Monday Gift, came to pay us a courtesy visit.
“The Super Falcons’ incredible run at the FIFA Women’s World Cup has ignited a new era of enthusiasm for women’s football in Nigeria. Their achievements on the field and the unity they brought to our nation are truly remarkable. We will continue to empower and encourage our female athletes, and also work towards a brighter future for women’s football in Nigeria.
“A big thank you to these amazing ladies for their visit, and for the gifts of the clubs jerseys.”
This is coming after first lady Remi Tinubu hosted the team in Aso Villa, Abuja. The Falcons crashed out of the FIFA Women’s World Cup in the Round of 16 on penalties to England.
