    President Bola Tinubu has conferred the national honour of Member of the Order of the Niger (MON) on all Super Eagles team members in appreciation of their performance at the just concluded CAF 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

    In further recognition of their achievement, the federal government, represented by the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), has granted each member of the team a plot of land as well as a flat with the location yet to be announced.

    President Tinubu, who received the national football team, expressed pride in the team, acknowledging their role in fostering unity within the country through their remarkable performance.

    Despite finishing second, he encouraged them to hold their heads high and maintain their team spirit.

    William Troost Ekong, the team’s assistant captain and recipient of the 2023 CAF AFCON Most Valuable Player, expressed gratitude to President Tinubu for his support, expressing a desire to present a trophy rather than silver medals.
