Super Eagles

President Bola Tinubu has praised the Super Eagles of Nigeria for their performance in the final of the 2024 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, in Côte d’Ivoire, describing it as tenacious.

President Tinubu, according to his media aide, Mr. Ajuri Ngelale, commended the team, the coach, the crew, and the entire management team for their hard work, assiduity, and sacrifice to come that far in the tournament.

He was said to have acknowledged the hurdles they consistently surpassed with steadily improving performance as they pulled through to the finals.

The president urged Nigerians to be of good cheer, emphasising that “we won a great victory in the hearts of Africa and the world by our grit, rigour, and determination in the field of play.”

“Let this passing event not dispirit us, but bring us together to work harder. We are a great nation bound as one by the green-white-green banner of resilience, joy, hope, duty, and untiring love. To those cherished Nigerian youths expressing their gifts in communities, drawing lines in the sand as they play football in their humble rectangles of play, you can be our heroes tomorrow, do not relent in your pursuit. My administration is here to make dreams come true,” the president said.
