C’River gov gifts Super Eagles’ Moffi N10m for AFCON success

The Governor of Cross River State, Bassey Otu, has gifted the Super Eagles forward, Terem Moffi N10m for winning the silverware with the Super Eagles at the recently concluded Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast.

Moffi received the gift Thursday night in Calabar alongside his father and younger brother.

Otu also commended the player for being a good ambassador of Cross River and for leading an exemplary life for the youths of the State to emulate.

The governor promised continued support for the Nice of France player, adding that his administration remained committed to youths and sports development as a way of curbing youth restiveness and creating opportunities for them.

“I am particularly delighted that you represented the State well and the fact that you have been a good ambassador of the youths in the State and beyond.

“Like you, we have so many talents across the State and we will continue to create opportunities for them to blossom.

“It is for that reason that we are making a lot of investment in youth and sports development,” Otu stated.

He also commended the Super Eagles players for their support of sports development in the state.

Earlier, Moffi had donated N1m to Pelican Stars FC, in addition to the donation of 25 balls each to the team and Calabar Rovers.

The silver medal-winning Eagles player currently plays for Nice of France.

He moved to Nice in 2023 after playing for FC Lorient of France and Belgian club, KV Kortrijk.

Moffi, who is among the players invited for the Eagles World Cup qualifying matches with South Africa and the Benin Republic in June, debuted for the senior national team in 2021.

Today's Quote

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
