The government of Bauchi State has bestowed honour President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Alhaji Aminu Maigari.
This recognition has come as a result of the giant strides that Nigeria is taking in international football as well as new grounds being broken by the National Teams.
In a letter addressed to the NFF President and signed on behalf of the Honourable Commissioner for Youth and Sports, Bauchi State, the Bauchi State government conveyed approval for the renaming of a major street in the capital city after Aminu Maigari.
“This is to inform you that approval has been granted by His Excellency, the Governor to name the Federal Low-Cost Junction-Zango Market Road after your good self. The road will now be called Alhaji Aminu Maigari Road,” the letter read.
In his response, Maigari, during whose tenure Nigeria’s National Teams have won six different trophies at competitive tournaments and friendly games over the past three years, said: “Indeed, Honourable Commissioner, words are inadequate to express my utmost delight and joy at this honour, which is all the more sweeter because it is coming from my home State. I am truly excited.”
