Zenith International Bank PLC has heaped encomiums on the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) for the progress made with the Nigeria cadet teams since the signing of the partnership agreement between both establishments a couple of years ago.
The partnership birthed the Future Eagles' U13/ U15 project, on the wings of the NFF/Zenith Bank Future Eagles Championships.
The heartwarming words of praise were showered on the NFF leadership by the GMD/CEO of Zenith Bank PLC, Mr. Peter Amangbo when the NFF, led by its President, Mr. Amaju Melvin Pinnick, presented the U15 National Team, Future Eagles, to its partners at Zenith International Bank PLC headquarters in Lagos.
“NFF/Zenith Future Eagles' program has helped achieve our dream when we were first elected four years ago. We thank the Chairman of Zenith Bank, Mr. Jim Ovia and the Board and Management. Without your support, we would not have been able to discover and raise what is now widely described as the future of Nigerian football,” Amangbo said.
“I would like to support the call by Ms. Falode for Zenith Bank to also invest in women football by adding a Future Falcons Project because it will help in promoting the game from the cradle with the girl child,” NFF President Pinnick stated.
Also in attendance with the members of the Future Eagles team at the Zenith Bank headquarters were Coach Danladi Nasidi, Mr. Adewale Adeyinka, Mr. Dotun Coker, Coach Siji Lagunju and Ayodele Ibidapo.
