The Senator representing Kwara Central Senatorial District, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has congratulated Kano Pillars FC for emerging the winners of this year’s Glo Nigeria Premier League.
Saraki, in a statement by his Media Office, also praised the Nigeria Under-17 football team, the Golden Eaglets, for walloping Mexico 6-1 in their first group match at the ongoing FIFA Under-17 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates.
Saraki, who is the proprietor of Abubakar Bukola Saraki FC, said that the emergence of Kano Pillars as the league winners showed that the feat achieved by the team last year was not a fluke.
He urged the team to fortify its weak areas as it prepares to confront the continent in the CAF Champions League, adding: “Kudos also to the Nigeria Football Federation for wading through a tortuous league season.”
In congratulating the Golden Eaglets, Saraki urged the Coach Manu Garba-led side to focus on the remaining matches of the tournament and not get carried away by the huge defeat of the defending champions, Mexico.
He said: “Defeating the defending champions is capable of blurring the focus of the team.
“This should not be allowed to happen as it will be dangerous to the aspiration of the team and Nigerians to win the championship a record four times.”
