Super Eagles winger Moses Simon has donated three sets of jerseys and 40 balls to the four semifinalists of the Eunice Spring Life Foundation U-18 Championship and also to his local government of origin in Benue State.

The Nantes midfielder extended his charity after the Super Eagles winger was hosted in Makurdi by Dr Eunice Ortom, the First Lady of the Executive Governor of Benue State.

Speaking at the welcoming ceremony, Dr Eunice Ortom thanked Simon for being a worthy ambassador of the middle belt, using sports and his philanthropic acts to unite Nigerians. She stated that the Nantes winger has grown into a role model for youth in the state.

In his reaction, Simon appreciated the first family of the state for receiving him warmly and stated his commitment to always represent the state in good light, even as he counselled the youth of the state to be of good conduct.

“If I can make it in football, you can make it because I was nobody, just that boy in the street of Kaduna who was in the barrack. So you guys can make it,” he said

“This is a specific message to the female teams. I’m really impressed you’ve chosen a noble cause to take to football. Playing football is of a better advantage than indulging in social vices of any kind,” he added.
