At an amazing function inside the meeting room of the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing, Abuja, the Minister, Mr. Babatunde Raji Fashola (SAN) said the event was an additional confirmation that the Buhari organization was “focused on putting right the wrongs of yesterday and changing all types of yesterday’s foul play”.

Westerhof, a Dutchman, was head mentor of the Super Eagles’ Class of 1994 – properly – styled Golden Generation – that won Nigeria’s first – ever FIFA World Cup ticket, won Nigeria’s first Africa Cup of Nations title on away ground and achieved the Round of 16 at the FIFA World Cup in USA.

“Mr. Westerhof finished our long – time look for a FIFA World Cup ticket, and a short time later proceeded to lead the group to Africa Cup of Nations wonder. As a country, we made guarantees, yet there was no development.

“I need the NFF to record those individuals from the squad that have not gotten their homes in the FCT as guaranteed, and when we get this, we will react decidedly. I was made mindful that the guarantees had not been satisfied through a letter by the associate mentor, Mr. Johannes Bonfrere, and we masterminded him to get his very own in December 2017. A half year later, at the FIFA World Cup in Russia, a noticeable writer, Mr. Onochie Anibeze, carried it to my notice that the head mentor, Mr. Westerhof was yet to get his very own home. We quickly started the procedure which has finished in the present occasion. The second Vice President of NFF, Mallam Shehu Dikko, who spoke to NFF President Amaju Pinnick at the event, adulated the activity of Mr. Fashola and his service, saying the reclamation of the vow was a positive sign to footballers and other sportsmen and ladies that guarantees would dependably be satisfied, regardless of to what extent it took. “We wll order a rundown of the individuals who have not gotten their homes and return to the Ministry”, Dikko said. An elated Westerhof, who flew into Nigeria from The Netherlands on Sunday night, stated: “I am thrilled. I need to thank the Nigerian government for this, and I need to guarantee you that you will currently observe a greater amount of me in Nigeria. “Nigeria is my second mother country, and I am pleased with what we had the option to accomplish with the players in those years. They were restrained, devoted and resolved to lift Nigeria high, and we took Nigeria from 79th position to fifth on the planet. I am appreciative. Be that as it may, I feel tragic that a portion of my players have left us. May their spirits rest in harmony.” Minister Fashola a short time later introduced the letter of allotment of the house to Westerhof.
