He said, “Adebutu was full of praises for the Super Eagles for their determination, professionalism and commitment throughout the qualifying campaign, which saw them overhaul the so-called Group of Death with a game to spare.

Despite the controversy surrounding the union of the son of the former Nigerian president to the daughter of Kessington Adebutu, the wedding took place, against the groom’s mother’s will.
Taiwo Obasanjo, wife of the ex-president, had said the wedding will lead to disaster and strange deaths in the country.
She had filed a suit at an Ikeja high court, seeking to stop the wedding but Lateefat Okunnu, the presiding judge, dismissed the suit on the grounds that the court lacked jurisdiction to hear it because Olujonwo, 33, is an adult.
The traditional marriage, which held at the Balmoral Hall of Federal Palace Hotel in Lagos, was attended by politicians, business moguls, as well as traditional rulers.
The white wedding of Tolulope Adebutu and Olujonwo Obasanjo is expected to take place on Saturday.
Tolulope and Olujonwo had their introduction ceremony in December, at the Ikoyi, Lagos home of Adebutu.
