The Federal Government on Friday fulfilled its promise of allocating houses to the victorious 1994 Super Eagles Team after 28 years.
The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, handed over the Certificate of Occupancy of three bedrooms Federal Government houses to each team member in Abuja.
The promise was actually made by the then military government of Gen. Sani Abacha, when the Super Eagles Squad won the African Cup of Nations in Tunis, Tunisia, in 1994.
The players presented with CoOs are Peter Rufai, Austine Eguaveon, Victor Ikpeba, Isaac Semitoje, Sunday Oliseh represented by his brother Albert Oliseh, and Uche Okafor represented by his daughter Tochukwu.
Fashola said it was an opportunity to remember the country’s heroes, the valiant Eagles to whom the country made a promise of providing houses for winning the 1994 AFCON.
