Enang said the National Assembly would ensure that the national teams get the maximum supports needed to win the trophy for the fourth time.
“He will tell them to pray for Nigerian team to win. The senate president also appeal to Christians and Muslims to jointly pray for Nigeria team to win,’’ Enang said.
He said the team’s brilliant performance in UAE had given Nigerians something to cheer for, adding that their performance had not given room for the negatives.
According to him, the Eaglets progression at the tournament was an indication that all is well with Nigeria and Nigerians.
The Chairman, Senate Committee on Rules and Business, Sen. Ita Enang, made this known when he reacted to the Golden Eaglets 2-0 defeat of Uruguay in Abuja on Sunday.
The Nigeria House of Senate says it has committed the Golden Eaglets to God ahead their Semi-finals against Sweden this evening at the ongoing FIFA U-17 World Cup taking place in the United Arab Emirate,UAE.
“With sports, hatred will stop; the divide between the North and South, Muslim and Christian will all disappear until we win.Now that we have celebrated them getting to this stage, we should all pray for them to bring the cup back home,” he said.
“Sports in Nigeria are like a neutraliser; whenever Nigeria is participating in any sporting event, even Boko Haram will soft-pedal.
“Whenever Nigeria has a match, the Senate President, David Mark, always calls for special prayer, in fact constituting prayer warriors to be on duty.
He noted that Nigeria’s centenary celebration in 2014 would be memorable if the Eaglets could lift the U-17 World Cup.
