AU Congratulates Nigeria’s Super Falcons for 2016 Women’s Cup of Nations victory

The Chairperson of the African Union Commission (AUC), H.E. Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma congratulates Nigeria’s women’s soccer team, the Super Falcons, for winning the 2015 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations finals on Saturday, 3 December 2016, in Yaounde, Cameroon.

This is the eighth time that Nigeria has claimed this victory. Nigeria’s Super Falcons claimed a 1-0 victory over hosts Cameroon’s Indomitable Lionesses at the final match in Yaounde. Dr. Dlamini Zuma also commended runners-up for putting up a splendid performance.

The AU Commission Chairperson equally congratulated the Confederation of African Football (CAF), the Government and people of the Republic of Cameroon, as well as all teams for the magnificent organisation and participation in the 2016 Edition of the African Women Cup of Nations.

Sports events continue to unite the continent and embody aspirations 2 and 5 of Agenda 2063 which speak to an integrated Africa with a strong cultural identity, common heritage, values and ethics.

The AU Commission Chairperson was in Yaounde, Cameroon, on 24 November 2016, to throw her support in the AWCON 2016 Finals, organised in Yaounde and Limber, in Cameroon.
