The Executive Governor of Lagos state, Governor Babatunde Raji Fashola SAN, praised the World’s leading international premium lager beer, Heineken® for availing Nigerians the rare opportunity to feel and experience the actual UEFA Champions League Trophy live.
Governor Fashola made this commendation last week at the Government House, Alausa, Ikeja when ex-international football star and coach Ruud Gullit, who is also the Heineken® brand ambassador, paid the governor a courtesy visit with the UEFA Champions League Trophy. 

Nigerians are extremely passionate about football. The UCL is a favourite amongst a very large section of Nigerians.The trophy is coming at a time when the Champions League is at a critical stage. Heineken’s® gesture of giving Nigerians an opportunity to actually feel the real UCL trophy live here in Lagos Nigeria this period is indeed laudable. It is a gesture that most Nigerians, including myself would not forget in a hurry”, the governor said.

While appreciating Heineken® for finding Lagos worthy of being included as part of the destinations where the UCL trophy would berth, Governor Fashola also used the occasion to call on the youths across the nation to embrace sports to engage themselves meaningfully. He said “Nigeria is a country full of talents. We want our youths to challenge themselves and embrace sports, not just football but other sports as well. We want to see Nigerian sports men and women compete with the best and excel at the global stage. Sports is a viable tool for national development and those of us in government would do all we can to support sports development.”
