Pastor demands recognition from NFF for praying on Super Eagles' behalf for over 14 years

Apostle Akia of Glory Church of Christ lamented that the his efforts have gone largely unrecognised by the NFF

A pastor based in Benin, Edo state capital, Yisa Akia has urged officials of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to provide him with the “necessary logistics” to continue his prayers for all the national teams, so that Nigeria “can reclaim her lost glory in football,” considering the dwindling fortunes of Nigerian teams in world football.

According to Leadership, Apostle Akia of Glory Church of Christ, also demanded that he receive proper recognition from the NFF because he has been praying on behalf of the national teams for the past 14 years.

It was gathered that he lamented that the his efforts have gone largely unrecognised by the NFF.

Apostle Akia was quoted as saying, “I want the NFF to know that somebody is working for their success at all times though they may not know. That is why I want proper recognition from them. I have assembled a prayer group whose duty it is to pray for the national team whenever we have a game, the NFF should give me proper recognition and they will see the wonders".
