“I congratulate you on this very special occasion. This award is a reflection of your resilience and contribution to the growth of football in the country. You’re truly a shining star.
“To whom more is given, more is expected, so having won this award several times, you’re expected to set the tune of exemplary leadership in women’s football. “I urge you to inspire and bring hope to young girls in Nigeria who see you as a role model. May your light never grow dim”, Dalung said.
