The Nasarawa State government has rewarded Nasarawa Amazons for their determination and consistency in the Nigeria Women’s Football League.

Governor Abdullahi Sule doled out a cash reward of $11,000 to the team at a special reception at the Government House in Lafia on Tuesday.

Sule expressed gratitude to the club for making the state proud by bringing glory to it and the people.

“I may not have the opportunity to come and watch your games, but I have been following up on all your activities in the league secretly, especially the highlights, through your WhatsApp platform, even though we don’t have another Eche Amos in your Group who keeps updating us via the Nasarawa United platform and others with all the happenings, and wherever I am in the world, he keeps me informed, and I must say we are so proud of what you are doing,” he stated in his address.

“So, I wanted an opportunity to thank you for making Nasarawa State proud. Many of my Governor colleagues would wish that they had the Amazons in their own States because I talk to my colleagues a lot and I follow up on everything they say about you.

“Indeed, you are doing a fantastic job and performing wonders despite the meagre resources available to you compared to what other States have and spend on their teams.

“I am always proud of the commitment and dedication of the Management of the Club headed by Hajiya Hussaina Suleiman, no wonder every member of the club is proud of her and the coaches.

“This is not a pledge, but I am giving you the cash right here.”

Nasarawa Amazons expressed gratitude to the Governor for his kind gesture to the team.

The club will be in action in a matchday nine fixture against Naija Ratels on Wednesday (today) at the Lafia City Stadium.
