Lagos State Governor talks football with Super Eagles players during dinner at the State House
The governor held a reception for the players who are in Lagos in preparation for their final Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers against the Benin Republic and Lesotho.
Governor Sanwo-Olu straight-away engaged the players in football banter, proving that he too follows the game.
He congratulated Kelechi Iheanacho on his recent form and his Premier League.
The governor, during the reception, quizzed the striker about that situation and spoke about how Wilfred Ndidi assisted Iheanacho for this third goal against Sheffield United on Sunday, March 14.
“It was a great honour to be hosted by the Lagos State government led by @jidesanwoolu. We don’t take it for granted in any way. We appreciate you greatly,” Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa said.
