All roads will lead to the National Assembly on June 19, when the House of Representative Committee on Sports will honour holidaying Nigerian international, John Mikel Obi, at the complex in recognition of his winning both the FA Cup and UEFA Champions League with his Premiership side, Chelsea, in the just concluded season.
Disclosing this to Daily Sunsports in Abuja last weekend, the Chairman of the House Committee, Hon. Godfrey Ali Gaiya, hinged the decision to honour the Chelsea’s star on the determination of the National Assembly to reward excellence, stressing that Mikel deserves more than the honour for making Nigeria proud.
The committee’s boss further added that the National Assembly wants to use the reception and honour to encourage other Nigerian footballers and sportsmen at home and abroad and show them the interest Nigerians attach on their achievements. “We have tentatively set aside Tuesday, June 19, as the day to receive Mikel Obi, as a honour for being a worthy Nigerian soccer ambassador as an indispensable and integral member of the Chelsea squad that who both the English FA Cup and the UEFA Champions League.
“The House wishes to use the honour for Mikel as a way of encouraging our footballers and sportsmen, both at home and abroad, that the government and people of Nigeria are proud of their achievements and exploits and will continue to support them in their efforts to make the country proud.
“Mikel did Nigeria proud, he is our worthy ambassador for proving his competent in Chelsea squad that lifted both the FA Cup and UEFA Championship league. His presence and rating among the best 22 players in the world league was enough indication that something good can always come out of Nigeria,” he said.
Speaking on the arrangement, the consultant to the Committee, Muhammed Abubakar, disclosed that the reception would rounded up with a night party at De Carabian Night Club where some few Chelsea fans would have the opportunity to meet and rock with Mikel, stressing that it would be strictly by invitation.

That is one thing with our bad government

That will come out to claim people glory but would not knew you exist when you are struggling a boy or girl abroad to pay your fees or doing other jobs

No scholarships like other countries for even the most brilliants students at home let alone those abroad.

The Govt will see you only when you excel in your field
