Nigeria yesterday redeemed its pledge to provide a house for Clemens Westerhof, the Technical Adviser that led the Nigeria national football team to victory in the 1994 African Nations Cup, 25 years after the pledge was made.

Babatunde Fashola, the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, who presented the house documents to Westerhof in Abuja, urged the Nigerian Football Federation to document the promises made by government and to identify those that have been fulfilled and those yet to be fulfilled for the Ministry of Power, Works and Housing to act towards redeeming the promises.

Responding Westerhof commended the federal government for redeeming the pledge, adding that with the house, he would be able to visit Nigeria with his family more regularly.
