It was raining all money today in Abuja as President Buhari who recently visited UAE, rewarded our Nigerian sports stars who excelled in their different endeavors and made the country proud over the past one year. The victorious Golden Eaglets team who emerged victorious at the FIFA U-17 tournament in China 30 years ago, was on Thursday rewarded by President Muhammadu Buhari with a cash gift of N2 million to each player, while their coaches were given N1.5 million each.
 The team won the trophy in 1985, when Buhari was military Head of State, and he reportedly promised to honour the team for its victory. However his tenure was cut short by a military coup, thereby making it impossible for him to fulfill his promise.
 The president today in Abuja, thanked God for keeping him alive to fulfill his promise to the team at a reception to honour the team and other victorious Nigerian athletes in recent competitions.
 President Buari said the reward given to them was not payment for their services to the country but a 'token of appreciation.'
 The U-17 team that won the world championship last year were also rewarded with N1.2 million each while the chief coach, Emmanuel Amuneke was given N900,000 and his assistants got N600,000 each.
 The team secretary and medical team got N300,000 each, while other officials got N200,000 each.
