NFF president Amaju Pinnick has confessed that the Super Eagles will like to make Lagos their permanent home like it was in the 90s up until the early 2000s.
Amaju Pinnick believes Mr Sanwó-Olú is doing a great jobin transforming Lagos into a mega city and says the Super Eagles would like to make the center of excellence their permanent home.
“Governor Sanwo-Olu supported us to beat Cameroun at the 2019 African Nations Cup in Egypt and we know he will continue to support us.”
At the dinner on Wednesday, Babajide Sanwo Olú urged Gernot Rohr and his men to go to Benin Republic to make Nigerians proud.
He said: “We want you to win in Porto Novo and come back to a rousing reception.
“We decided to take you through the blue seas of Lagos to show you the beauty in our state. We want Lagos to be our own Miami, where rivers play big roles in the lives of the people.”
Pinnick and the executive governor of Lagos however echoed same thing as regards the super eagles traveling by sea to Benin Republic with both of them practically saying it’s to educate Nigerians.
“We are proud to be traveling by boat because it will give the players the opportunity to see and feel the beauty of the country.
“We want to educate Nigerians that there are more means of transportation than air and road.” Pinnick said
