Super Eagles goalkeeper, Stanley Nwabali, was on Sunday conferred with a chieftaincy title by the traditional ruler of Mgbede community in Egbema Kingdom, Rivers State, Nzeobi Amida.

According to a Nigerian sports website, BSN, the title, Ugo Egbema “The Pride of Egbema Kingdom”, was conferred on the goalkeeper following his performance at the recently concluded 2023 African Cup of Nations in Cote D’Ivoire.

Report says that Amuda, who is also the chairman ONELGA Council of Chiefs, said the title conferred on Nwabali is in recognition of the honour the goalkeeper brought to Egbema Kingdom and ONELGA following his performance for the Super Eagles.

The Rivers State Park Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, on Friday, gifted the Rivers-born Nwabali N20m and conferred on him the honour of Distinguished Service Star of Rivers State.

President Bola Tinubu on Tuesday also honoured each player and official of the Nigerian Super Eagles with the Member of the Order of the Niger national award for securing the silver medal at the just-concluded AFCON.
