President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick has assured that they would do everything to ensure women football gets the necessary facelift in the country.
He made this known while addressing journalists after the conclusion of the Super 6 tournament that was won by Rivers Angels.
Rivers Angels defeated Sunshine Queens of Akure 4-0 in Ijebu Ode to win the Nigerian Women Football League (NWFL) Super Six Championship.
The victory, which crowned the River State team as champions of the Nigerian Women’s Professional League, also gave the side a ticket to represent the country in the WAFU B zone of the maiden CAF Women Champions League.
Pinnick, who was delighted with the outcome of the Super Six said that women’s football deserved more attention in the country.
“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.”
