Super Eagles player, Kelechi Iheanacho, has commended the Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello for his achievements in the face of challenges.
He gave the commendation during a courtesy visit to the governor in Abuja on Thursday, describing him as a rallying point for the youths in Nigeria.
The Leicester City star said “Your Excellency, I am highly honored to be received by you this afternoon. I have heard a lot about you and I am equally educated about your achievement in Kogi State during this visit.
I commend your effort despite the challenges on your table to have made yourself as the rallying point for the youths of this country. It is difficult to find a leader who (is) ready to bring the youth of the country into governance the way you are doing in Kogi State”.
He also commended Governor Bello for honouring the Ex-Super Eagles in Lokoja sometime ago. He said such honour remains huge source of motivation and inspiration to young athletes in Nigeria and beyond.
In his remarks, Bello said he was pleased to receive Iheanacho while describing him as a smart soccer prodigy. He said Kelechi is making Nigeria and most importantly the youth of the country proud by his outstanding performance at both country and club levels.
He congratulated the player for his achievements and most importantly in making Nigeria great by playing for the Super Eagles unlike others who after finding their foot on foreign soil decided to remain there.
