The Cross River State Governor, Bassey Otu has awarded Super Eagles forward Terem Moffi N10 million for his contribution to the team's success in securing the silver medal at the Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast.

Moffi received the gift Thursday night in Calabar alongside his father and younger brother.

Otu also commended the player for being a good ambassador of Cross River and for leading an exemplary life for the youths of the State to emulate.

The governor promised continued support for the Nice of France player, adding that his administration remained committed to youths and sports development as a way of curbing youth restiveness and creating opportunities for them.

“I am particularly delighted that you represented the State well and the fact that you have been a good ambassador of the youths in the State and beyond.

“Like you, we have so many talents across the State and we will continue to create opportunities for them to blossom.

“It is for that reason that we are making a lot of investment in youth and sports development,” Otu stated.

He also commended the Super Eagles players for their support of sports development in the state.

Earlier, Moffi had donated N1m to Pelican Stars FC, in addition to the donation of 25 balls each to the team and Calabar Rovers.

The silver medal-winning Eagles player currently plays for Nice of France.

He moved to Nice in 2023 after playing for FC Lorient of France and Belgian club, KV Kortrijk.

Moffi, who is among the players invited for the Eagles World Cup qualifying matches with South Africa and the Benin Republic in June, debuted for the senior national team in 2021.
