Players and officials of the Super Eagles took time off their hectic training schedule to unwind on Christmas day Eve and what a party it turned out to be.
The Management of Bolton White Hotel and Apartments, had through a letter to Head Coach, Steve Keshi, requested to host the team so that they can have a feel of the season through a cocktail that was fully sponsored by the hotel.
And they lived up to their words, as exactly by 9pm on the night some of the best entertainment acts in the Federal capital led by comedian, FredBright, who was also the MC of the night led a retinue of musicians, comedians and the hotel management to thrill the players in an event that led to most of the guests reeling with laughter.
GM Of Bolton White, Chiedu Anekwe and Apartment Manager, Chika Udeochu, said they were motivated to organize the event, not only as a honour for the technical crew which found the place worthy but as part of its contribution to the rebuilding of the national team.
They prophesied that trophies that have eluded the national team in recent times will soon start flowing in torrents.
Players led by goalkeeper, Chigozie Agbim, Moses Ocheje, Rabiu Ali and Sunday Mba said they were taking aback by the huge reception and despite not being at home with their families, they thoroughly enjoyed the Christmas season.
Team Psychologist, Robinson Okosun spoke on behalf of other backroom staff, declaring that the hotel has proven that it has the capacity to host super stars and top events, because of the orderly conduct of the staff and management.
On his part, Big Boss; Steve Keshi, said he was convinced that sooner than later the national team will be back in the hotel.
“Security was perfect and we didn’t have to keep awake because all manner of people are coming here as we face in some other hotels. This is commendable and I urge the hotel management to keep it up. A huge Super Eagles cake was later cut by Keshi, assisted by Amokachi and the hotel management to commemorate a new dawn and mark the yuletide by the national team.
