President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick has vowed to leave no stone unturned in ensuring that women football develops in the country.
Rivers Angels beat Sunshine Queens of Akure 4-0 in Ijebu Ode to become the winner of the Nigerian Women Football League (NWFL) Super Six Championship and they were crowned as champions of the Nigerian Women’s Professional League.
Also, the victory gave the Rivers State team a ticket to represent Nigeria in the WAFU B zone of the maiden CAF Women Champions League.
While talking to journalists after the end of the Super 6 tournament, Pinnick revealed that women football deserved more attention in the country.
He said: “Admittedly, we need to do even more for women football in this country because as I always insist, the women deserve more attention having won as many as nine African titles for the country. It is no mean feat.
“I am enamoured by the superb organization of the Super 6 and I have no doubt that the positive vibes therefrom and the terrific after-glow will have some good impact on our efforts to engender real development and sustainability of the women’s game.
“Our vision of building a sustainable football culture for our dear country remains unshaken, and the women’s game is an integral part of that vision and mission.”
