A billboard has been erected in Benue State, to honour Super Falcons’ winger, Francisca Ordega.
Ordega was one of the standout performers for Nigeria at the just concluded FIFA Women’s World Cup.
She was also crucial to the team retaining their African Women’s Cup of Nations in Ghana last year.
The message on the billboard says: “Welcome to Benue State the home of Francisca Mlumum Ordega Super Falcons star, we’re proud of You.”
In her reaction, she said: “Would your state welcome you like this, would your state ever? Welcome home Franny, Welcome Francisca.
“Little things matters a lot..this might be nothing to you but it means a lot to me..They sure might not have gold to give none silver, but appreciating their own daughter/sister in there own little way…Imma keep doing Benue Proud….proudly Benue.”
