A statement issued in Abuja on Sunday by Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President (Media & Publicity), said President Buhari commended the Falcons for their fighting spirit and resplendent skills evidenced in teamwork, discipline and focus, which enabled them to defeat the Ivorian Dame Elephantes at the finals of the championship.
