Eulogies as Enyeama’s mother is laid to rest.

The mother of Super Eagles’ goalkeeper and skipper, Vincent
Enyeama, who passed away in August, was interred Saturday in
Akwa Ibom state.
The president of Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, and
other Nigerians who attended the funeral, praised God for the life
of late Lucy Philip Enyeama, who was buried same day at Urua
Inyang, Akwa Ibom State.
The NFF boss, who was at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, Urua
Inyang, venue of the burial mass, charged all those present not to
mourn, but to celebrate the life and times of a woman who left
behind several children she brought up in the way of the Lord,
and who have achieved fame in their chosen careers.
“One of those children that our dear mother, Mrs Lucy Enyeama,
left behind is Vincent, one of the best goalkeepers in the world for
several years now, a three –time FIFA World Cup star and winner
of the Africa Cup of Nations, as well as several other
“The Nigeria football fraternity appreciates how much our Captain
must be grieving at this period. His mother, Mrs Lucy Philip
Enyeama, was a very caring and compassionate parent, who
gave her children much love and support during her lifetime.
“Dear all, we loved her, but God Almighty loves her much more.
And we must take solace in the fact that late Mrs Enyeama left her
very bold footprints in the sands of time. Rather than be thrown
into sorrow, we must celebrate her for she has been succeeded
by children of mettle, and of timbre and calibre.”
The burial rites of late Mrs. Enyeama began on Friday with a Night
of Songs at the Christ The King Church (CKC), Barracks Road, Uyo,
and there would be thanksgiving at the same venue on Sunday.
