President Muhammadu Buhari has joined millions of football-loving Nigerians in celebrating the dogged performance of the home-based Super Eagles of Nigeria on their victory over Sudan in the semi-final of the 2018 Championship of African Nations (CHAN) in Marrakesh, Morocco.
The congratulatory message was contained in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina.
“Having keenly followed the team’s progress throughout the tournament with delight, the President commends their hardwork, dedication, discipline and indomitable spirit, which are truly worthy of emulation,” the statement read in part.
Their victory on Wednesday, qualified them for the final on Sunday with Morocco.
President Buhari, however, encouraged the players and the coaching crew to “remain focused and determined as they go for Gold in the final match on Sunday.”
He also assured them of the unflinching support, goodwill and prayers of the Federal Government and all Nigerians as they soar to victory.
