 Amidst gladness and jubilation, the people of Ogba-Egbema-Ndoni Local Government Area (ONELGA) of Rivers State rolled out the drums to accord a heroic reception to their son, Stanley Nwabali, Super Eagles goalkeeper.

Speaking at the civic reception he organized in honour of Nwabali, Hon. Vincent Job, the executive chairman of Ogba-Egbema-Ndoni LGA at Omoku, gave thumbs up to Super Eagles goalkeeper, Stanley Nwabali, for doing the local government area, state and nation proud at the just concluded 2023 AFCON in Abidjan, Cote D’Ivoire.

The ONELGA council boss urged youths in the area to emulate Nwabali’s rise to stardom, and subsequently announced a ₦5m reward to the Super Eagles goalkeeper for his heroic performance during the just concluded football tournament.

He also named a street after him at Omoku, the local government headquarters.

Also, the traditional ruler of Mgbede community in Egbema Kingdom (Nwabali’s community), HRM Nzeobi Evaristus Amida conferred on Stanley Nwabali, the traditional title; ‘Ugo Egbema,’ “The Pride of Egbema Kingdom”

Nzeobi Evaristus Amuda, who is the chairman ONELGA council of chiefs, said the title conferred on Nwabali was in recognition of the honour he brought to Egbema Kingdom and ONELGA following his performance during the competition.

The visibly elated Sole Proprietor of Go Round FC (the football club Stanley Nwabali started his football career) Brother Felix Obuah, assured that he will continue to contribute his quota to the development of youths in the state, stressing that he does not need Stanley Nwabali’s heroic performance at the Nations Cup final to continue to do more for Go Round FC.
