President Bola Tinubu said on Thursday that Nigerian women will always have a pride of place in the world, as he hosted Super Falcons striker and 2023 CAF Women’s Player of the Year, Asisat Oshoala, in Lagos.

“What our ladies have achieved in football, our women are achieving in all fields of endeavour around the world—rising to the top and demonstrating the best of the Nigerian character of excellence, tenacity, ingenuity, and resilience,” Tinubu noted.

The President who hosted the Barcelona Femeni star in company with First Lady, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, hailed her on winning the best African female footballer of the year for the sixth time and contributing to the improvement of female football in the continent.

Cognizant of the feats of star sprinter, Tobi Amusan, and the presence of multiple Nigerian women on the Forbes’ ‘2023 World’s 100 Most Powerful Women,’ List, including media mogul, Ms. Mo Abudu, and Director-General of the World Trade Organization (WTO), Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, the President and the First Lady assured Oshoala of the nation’s continued support for her and other Nigerian women striving for excellence in their chosen paths.

Speaking to journalists after the warm reception, Oshoala said: ”I want to appreciate the President and the First Lady for giving me the opportunity to present the award to them. During the last World Cup, we had a couple of issues, and they intervened and have been very supportive to the girls, even after the competition.”
