Ekong, Agu meets Presidents of Nigeria and Turkey


Nigeria Super Eagles duo of defender William Troost-Ekong and midfielder Mikel Agu on Thursday met Presidents of Nigeria Muhammadu Buhari and Turkey Raycip Tayyip Erdogan at the Presidential palace in Ankara, Turkey.

Nigeria president Muhammadu Buhari is in Turkey for the D-8 summit which begins on Friday and with his counterparts from Turkey Raycip Erdogan met with Super Eagles players playing for Bursaspor in Turkey Super league.

Ekong was excited at meeting the presidents and could not contain his joy as he took to social media to express how ‘honoured’ he was: “Honoured 🙏🏽 🇳🇬🇹🇷@MBuhari @rterdogan_ar,” he wrote.

Both players were on parade as Nigeria secured qualification for Russia 2018 World Cup at the expense of Zambia a fortnight ago.
