The Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, says the victory of the Super Falcons at the Africa Women Cup of Nations shows that with determination Nigeria can overcome its challenges.

Saraki said this in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, on Sunday in Abuja.

Saraki, who hailed the Super Falcons for retaining the title, said the victory could not have come at a better moment.

“The record win of the AWCON Cup by the Super Falcons has again demonstrated clearly that with determination we can surmount any obstacle confronting us as a nation.

“I have no doubt that through team work and single-mindedness, we can overcome our present economic challenges,’’ he was quoted as saying.

The Super Falcons won the AWCON in Cameroon after beating the host team 1-0 to retain the title in Yaounde on Saturday.

And Saraki commended the members of the team and technical crew for their patriotism and sense of purpose.

He called for more government and private sector support to enable Nigerian sportsmen and women excel in their career. (NAN)
