The Ogoja-born Super Eagles striker, Terem Moffi, paid a courtesy visit to the Commissioner for Sports Development in Cross River State.

The Super Eagles striker, who is in Calabar with his family to spend the holiday, was accompanied by his father, Leo Moffi, to the ministry. He stated that he deemed it necessary to embark on the courtesy visit to the ministry as it was the place where he started his football career. He mentioned that as a young player, he played for YSFON academy and Diamond Stars Football Club. He lived in the Calabar Stadium hostel and did his training at the Calabar Stadium, which helped him attain success in his football career.

He thereafter thanked the Commissioner and staff of the ministry for the warm reception they offered him and promised to partner with the ministry to further improve sporting activities in the state.

The Commissioner for Sports Development in the State, Agnes Atsu, welcomed the Cross River-born soccer star to her office on behalf of the Governor. 

She applauded Terem's father, Leo Moffi, who played for Enugu Rangers and Calabar Rovers Football Club, for his outstanding contributions to football development in the State, especially in nurturing his son to continue his football career.

"Today, Terem is making Cross River State proud to have a global soccer star from the Ogoja Local Government area of the State," she said.

She also thanked Terem Moffi for remembering to visit the premises where he started his career, as it is an honor to the ministry, the Government, and the State. She further applauded him for thinking in the right direction by developing sporting activities in his indigenous home, Cross River State. 

The commissioner admonished the Super Eagles striker, who is now a football ambassador of the state, to continue his efforts of making Cross River proud. 

Terem Moffi and other Cross River indigenous athletes who are making the State proud will be honored by Governor Bassey Otu in a grand reception at the Government House. The Governor, who has a People's First Mantra, is keen on developing football as one of the sporting activities that can empower young people and unify the people. He is collaborating with other sporting organizations to improve sporting activities in the state. She disclosed the Governor's agenda of extending sporting activities to other parts of the state with the building and equipping of a world-class stadium in Ogoja that will meet the standard of hosting football tournaments and other sports competitions.

At the ceremony, Terem Moffi donated the sum of One Million (1,000,000) naira and twenty-five football boots to the Pelican Stars Football Club. He also presented a replica jersey of his club to the commissioner and permanent secretary of the ministry.

Those present at the event included the Honourable Commissioner for Sports Development, Mrs. Agnes Atsu, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Sports Development, Hon.
