C’River Gov Gifts Super Eagles’ Moffi N10m for AFCON Success

Following the Super Eagles’ success in the recently ended Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast, Terem Moffi, the forward for the team, received a N10 million present from Cross River State Governor Bassey Otu.

Along with his younger brother and father, Moffi accepted the present on Thursday night in Calabar.

Otu also complimented the athlete on being a good representative of Cross River and living a life that should be an example for the young people in the state.

The governor promised continued support for the Nice of France player, adding that his administration remained committed to youths and sports development as a way of curbing youth restiveness and creating opportunities for them.

“I am particularly delighted that you represented the State well and the fact that you have been a good ambassador of the youths in the State and beyond.

“Like you, we have so many talents across the State and we will continue to create opportunities for them to blossom.

“It is for that reason that we are making a lot of investment in youth and sports development,” Otu stated.

He also commended the Super Eagles players for their support of sports development in the state.

Earlier, Moffi had donated N1m to Pelican Stars FC, in addition to the donation of 25 balls each to the team and Calabar Rovers.

The silver medal-winning Eagles player currently plays for Nice of France.

He moved to Nice in 2023 after playing for FC Lorient of France and Belgian club, KV Kortrijk.

Moffi, who is among the players invited for the Eagles World Cup qualifying matches with South Africa and the Benin Republic in June, debuted for the senior national team in 2021.
