The Ambassador, we are told, came and waited for us at the airport from 10pm and when we arrived, he assisted us till we checked-in at our hotel at 3:15am.

“His Excellency didn’t stop at that, he visited us at the hotel the next day and followed us to the stadium and watched our training session alongside his son and other embassy staff. Only core diplomat can show such level of concern and patriotism.

“With Ambassador Mohammed around, we are at home here in Algiers, because this is the best reception we have ever received from a Nigerian embassy or commission in any of our continental engagements outside Nigeria ” Elder Bassey noted.

The Nigerian Ambassador to Algeria Mohammed Abdullahi Mabdul while receiving Akwa United’s delegation on arrival in Algiers, congratulated the team for winning the NPFL title last season and also wished the team success in their continental campaign.
