“The problem we face in the country today is that nobody believes in fair play, everybody wants to get to position of authority by hook or crook, nobody believe in fair game.

“So, if you have a team from Nigeria that goes for an international tournament and it is recognised as a team that did not break the rules, did not try to manipulate the rules and they won the Fair Play award, that team ought to be celebrated.

“Knowing that the team is coming from Nigeria where nobody seems to believe in the rules, where nobody seems to believe in fairness, I think that team has sent a message to the rest of Africa that there are still some Nigerians out there that believe in fairness.

“It is therefore very important that this team FOSLA Girl’s Football Academy team deserves to be celebrated for this laudable feat,” he said.

Speaking also at the tournament, Sani Lulu Abdullahi, the former NFF President thanked the fatherly role of Sarkin Karshi over the affairs of FOSLA Academy.

“We want to sincerely thank the Sarkin Karshi for honouring FOSLA Girl’s Academy team for what the team achieved in CAF U-15 Girl’s tournament in Lome, Togo,” Sani Lulu Abdullahi began.

“We went to Togo. These girls from out of the teams that took part in the tournament were declared the youngest. These girls were clearly under – aged at the tournament.

“It is not winning at all cost, but doing the right thing always. We faced intimidation in Togo, yet the organisers affirmed that we are the most behaved team, highly disciplined, the youngest and the most accomplished, that complied 100% to the rules and regulations.

“These are the reasons we were given the Fair Play Award. This Award shows that we positively to the best of our knowledge laundered the image of this country, that is what football is doing through FOSLA to the advantage of this great nation – Nigeria.

“So, we thanked Sarkin Karshi, the people of Karshi for creating an enabling environment for FOSLA to thrive,” he said.
