  1. Thank God for Nigerian super eagles. I am happy they reached finals. But we need the cup. For the federal gov., I want it to become a law that every local gov. Must have a football team. This will help us catch them young. Secondly, every technical college should be handed over to the fedral govt. To boost technology in Nigeria.
