2023 AFCON: Governor Fubara Gifts Nwabali N20m, State Honour


Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, on Friday, announced a N20million reward for Stanley Nwabali and also bestowed him with the honour of Distinguished Service Star of Rivers State.

The governor commended the Rivers-born Nwabali for his excellent goalkeeping in the Super Eagles team, playing alongside other patriots in the just concluded AFCON, which has made Nigeria proud.

He said, “I want to join the great and wonderful people of Rivers State to congratulate you, our brother Stanley Nwabali and our wonderful team.

“We are here again in just about four months after you won a local trophy.

Today, you have brought a national trophy. So, when people say or talk behind us to ask what we are doing, we are achieving those things that are not, maybe, seen physically but they give joy and fulfilment.

“If we have not encouraged you in a way that motivated you, you won’t be where you are. So, it is part of purposeful governance and administrative efficiency.

“So, I want to thank you and assure you that we will continue to do our best.”

The governor also announced a 30m reward to the backroom staff of the Super Eagles.
