The Senate President’s support for Super Eagles of Nigeria may just go down as the best ever in the history of that position.

Just on Tuesday, NFF President, Amaju Pinnick announced to the Super Eagles, Dr Bukola Saraki’s gift of $50,000 (about N18m) to the team.

This was his way of encouraging them to go and excel at the World Cup in Russia, staring with Saturday’s friendly with England’s Three Lions at Wembley Stadium in London.

Then again, he surprised them with a visit to their hotel in Abuja before they left for London and he got the kind of reaction he must have wished for - the players were excited.

There is also a yet-to-be-revealed ‘special package’ for the entire team “for every unreplied goal” scored at the FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Meanwhile, we are waiting for Dr. Saraki to announce his gift to the athletes that represented Nigeria at the just concluded Commonwealth Games in Australia.
