The FCT Football Association led by Adam Mouktar Mohammed have congratulated Fosla Academy Abuja for emerging first-ever winners of the rebranded National Principal’s Cup.
Fosla Academy were deserved 2-0 winners over Christ Comprehensive School Kaduna in Tuesday’s final staged at the MKO Abiola National Stadium in Abuja.
“We are proud of the glory you have brought to the FCT,” said FCT FA chairman Mouktar Mohammed.
“To be crowned the best football school in the whole of Nigeria did not come to us as a surprise because over the years the school has been consistent in producing quality players, some of who have since gone on to make football their career.
“This achievement will be a major source of inspiration for schools and students in the Federal Capital Territory to remain focused and steadfast so as to achieve their goals.”
“Young and exciting talents abound in the FCT and Fosla Academy have only underlined this fact,” he added.
“And that also explains the FA’s total commitment to the football development at grassroots level.”
Mohammed singled out former NFF president Sani Lulu, who is also the proprietor of Fosla Academy, for his commitment to make the school a centre for excellence in education and sports.
“I wish to personally commend the former NFF president for making Fosla an enviable model in the FCT and even beyond,” he saluted.
“He has truly impacted on the community and his legacy will be long lasting.
“We hope and pray many others will emulate what he has done for many years with so much passion, sacrifice and dedication.”
