Hungary seeks closer football ties with Nigeria
 
 NFF President, Alhaji Aminu Maigari
The Ambassador of Hungary to Nigeria, His Excellency Zsolt Maris on Wednesday visited the Secretariat of the Nigeria Football Federation, saying he is determined to forge closer ties between Nigeria and Hungary in the football sector.

“There is so much we can learn from Nigeria as the champion team of Africa in football. Nigeria is also one of the strongest football-playing nations of the world.
“Hungary used to be up there in the football world but we fell down the ranking over the decades and we’re now making efforts to improve things again. Our Prime Minister is a keen football fan and he wants the national team to gain global respect once more,” Maris told NFF President, Alhaji Aminu Maigari.
Accompanied by the Consul-General, Mr. Emdre Deki, Ambassador Maris disclosed that he is presently seeking the permission of the Federal Government to re-open the Embassy of Hungary in Nigeria after a two-year hiatus. He has concurrent accreditation to Ghana and Angola as well.
The NFF President welcomed the Hungarian delegation and assured them that his administration is open to closer ties with other federations and nations that would help the development of the Nigeria game.
Both the Nigeria Football Federation and the Hungarian Football Federation will explore the possibility of signing a memorandum of understanding that will open channels of closer co-operation.
Also at the meeting were Chairman of NFF Media and Publicity Committee, Chief Emeka Inyama, Member of the NFF Executive Committee, Alhaji Yusuf Ahmed Fresh and General Secretary, Musa Amadu.
Both Nigeria and Hungary have enjoyed success at the Olympic Games. Hungary have the best record in Men’s Football Tournament in the Games history, with three gold medals, one silver and one bronze. Nigeria, gold medallists in 1996, also added a silver at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.
Hungary’s Ferenc Puskas remains one of the best footballers of all time, and Hungary’s defeat by then West Germany in the Final of the 1954 FIFA World Cup is considered one of the biggest upsets in the game’s history.

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
