After 28 years, the Nigerian government has kept its pledge to give residences to members of the 1994 Super Eagles.
Three members of the 1994 Super Eagles received the keys to a three-bedroom bungalow from FG, as promised.
Mutiu Adepoju, Ike Shorunmu, and Finidi George are the beneficiaries of the home from the 1994 cast. Team doctor Akin Amao also received the house key.
At the project site in Oyo state’s Akinyele Local Government, Babatunde Fashola, the minister of works and housing, gave the players the keys.
At the project site, Onidundu in the Akinyele Local Government area of Oyo state, Babatunde Fashola, the minister of works and housing, handed them the keys and said: “The beneficiaries are among the first set of Nigerians including the 1994 Super Eagles who would be handed keys to their houses that was promised by the Federal government over 28 years ago.”
“We have entered a season of completion and handover of keys to beneficiaries in 35 states and the FCT to Nigerians who have successfully subscribed through the open ministry’s website for the sales of these completed houses.”
Seyi Makinde, the state governor, expressed his gratitude for the massive project taking place in the state and promised that the state government will assign the project’s land to the federal ministry of labor and housing.
Makinde, who was speaking on behalf of the Director of Land Management, asked the ministry to utilize more areas of the allotted lands.
Adepoju, Shorunmu, and Yetunde Adeniyi, who filled in for Amao, thanked God for granting them the opportunity to witness such a momentous occasion in a post-program interview with news reporters.
“I just have to be thankful to God and President Buhari for doing this during our lives time. 28 years, I am happy and thank God for the honour.”
Shoronmu said, “I’ve never lost any hope in my country because if do I would have relocated to Europe.”
