- The federal government had promised the Dutchman after his Atlanta 96' glory- The Super Eagles lost to the Czech Republic in their final friendly on WednesdayThe federal government has fulfilled its promise to former Super Eagles coach, Bonfrere Jo, handing him the keys to a three-bedroom apartment in Gwagwalada, Abuja.The Dutchman guided the Dream Team to win the man's football event event at the Atlanta’96 Olympic Games and was promised a house.Minister of power, works and housing, Babatunde Fashola, handed Bonfrere the keys during a brief ceremony in Abuja, said the reward would inspire the Super Eagles at the Russia 2018 World Cup.
Fashola said,“Let me on behalf of the President apologise to you that it has taken so long for the Nigerian government to come through."We thank you for your contribution to the development of our country, our youth, footballand to say that it is better late than never. Nigeria always come through, we have come through for you.“It is proper that with just few days to another World Cup, Nigeria fulfils and redeems this pledge and I hope that this will serve as an inspiration to our players going to the World Cup and the officials that this government will be there for you all the way.“Ordinarily, this ought to be a short meeting but if it take 24 years for the government of thecountry to respond to its citizens, it must assume a news making event."This is consistent with the commitment that the President has made that once again, he will make Nigerians proud of their country. This country should always be there to respond to the needs and expectations of the citizens.”The 71-year-old who was coach when Eagles were runners-up at the Nigeria/Ghana 2000 Nations Cup thanked the Federal Government.“As a coach that was directly involved in the 1994 Africa Cup of Nations and the 1996 Olympic football gold medal victories, I crave for an impressive performance for our Super Eagles in Russia and offer my support to the team and technical staff,”he said.
