Businessman rewards Falconets with IPAD

A Nigerian businessman based in Tokyo, Mr. Stanley Okafor, has donated a Samsung Galaxy Tab and IPAD to each member of the national U-20 women’s team, the Falconets for their achievements so far in the ongoing FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Japan.

Falconets’ Media Officer, Ejiro Femi-Babafemi, in an online statement monitored by NAN said the donation was for the Falconets performance at the competition.

The Nigerian girls on August 30 defeated Mexico 1-0 to advance to the semi-finals of the competition and will meet their United States opponents tomorrow in one of the last four matches.

The statement said that each of the 21 players and 10 officials received the mobile device at a colourful ceremony held at the team’s Hilton Hotel in Tokyo, Japan.

Okafor, who said that he had watched the Falconets matches from the preliminaries, had earlier donated $800 to the team, prior to their last group game against Italy.

“It’s my widow’s mite of saying well done. You have made us proud. This is the best national team as far as I am concerned, and I am delighted to be identified with you,” Okafor said.

The statement added that the businessman, who has spent over 22 years in Tokyo, also assured the team of more goodies if they eventually lifted the trophy.
