Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Benjamin Okezie Kalu has hailed the Super Falcons of Nigeria for their victory against Australia in the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup match.
The Super Falcons on Thursday defeated Australia 3-2 at the Brisbane Stadium. They beat their opponent to record their first win in the competition.
Speaking shortly after he received the good news while presiding over Thursday’s plenary, Kalu urged the Super Falcons to sustain the tempo, praying that they will bring back the trophy.
The Deputy Speaker said, “It’s a happy day for Nigeria. We are out there especially our ladies, we must encourage them the more. Nothing unites us like sports. We appreciate our women out there who are working to bring back the trophy. We are with you, we are praying for you and hopefully you will bring back the trophy and we will be here to celebrate. Thank you and keep up the good job.”
