The Super Eagles midfielder is delighted with the prospect of meeting with the nation’s number one citizen on Thursday
Enugu Rangers midfielder Ejike Uzoenyi is looking forward to Thursday’s presidential reception organised for the bronze winning Super Eagles squad at the 2014 African Nations Championship held in South Africa.
The pint sized player was Nigeria’s star performer in the competition and adjudged the Most Valuable Player of the competition.
In a chat with Goal, Uzoenyi said the presidency has done well to recognise their effort despite not emerging as champions. He also continued saying this gestures will spur him and his colleagues to always put in their best whenever called on national duties.
“To say that I am glad is just an understatement. This is a laudable feat by the president and it should be commended,” he told Goal.
“ We went to South Africa and even though we were written off after the first match against Mali, we were able to hold our own and still got a bronze medal in only our first time of participation in CHAN.
“I am going to Abuja with a very good feeling and I am sure that this gesture will make us always offer our best to the country at any time,” Uzoenyi concluded. ----------------- goal.com
