Sen. Oluremi Tinubu, the First Lady of Nigeria, has rallied the Super Falcons to strive for victory and secure the gold medal for Nigeria at the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris. Tinubu expressed her confidence and support for the team, emphasizing the importance of their achievement in qualifying for the Olympics after 16 years.

In a statement issued by her spokesperson, Olubusola Kukoyi, in Abuja on Wednesday, the First Lady applauded the Super Falcons for their perseverance, commitment, and resilience, which led to their successful qualification for the prestigious event. She praised the team’s hard work and team spirit, noting that their accomplishments have brought honor to Nigeria and served as an inspiration to countless young girls across the country.

Tinubu emphasized that while the Super Falcons have achieved a significant milestone by qualifying for the Olympics, their journey is far from over. She encouraged them to view their qualification as the beginning of a new and greater adventure, urging them to continue making Nigeria proud by striving for excellence and aiming to clinch the gold medal in Paris.

The First Lady’s message of encouragement comes in the wake of similar commendations from other prominent figures in Nigerian sports. Earlier, Sen. John Owan-Enoh, the Minister of Sports Development, lauded the Super Falcons for their remarkable performance in the Olympic qualifiers. The team secured their spot in the 2024 Olympics after defeating Banyana Banyana of South Africa in a thrilling two-leg encounter.

In the first leg of the qualifiers, held in Nigeria, the Super Falcons emerged victorious with a hard-fought 1-0 win over their South African counterparts. Despite facing a tough challenge in the return leg in South Africa, the Nigerian team managed to hold Banyana Banyana to a goalless draw, securing their qualification for the Paris Olympics.

The Super Falcons’ qualification for the Olympic Games represents a significant achievement for Nigerian women’s football and a testament to the team’s skill, determination, and resilience. As they prepare to compete on the global stage, the entire nation stands behind them, rallying in support of their quest for Olympic glory. With the backing of the First Lady and other stakeholders, the Super Falcons are poised to make Nigeria proud and leave an indelible mark at the 2024 Olympics in Paris.
