“Their victory today, and in the future, is our victory as a nation”- Obi Applauds super Eagles


The 2023 Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, congratulated the Super Eagles on their Friday night quarterfinal triumph over Angola.

Nigeria’s first goal of the match, and only goal overall, came from Atalanta winger Ademola Lookman in the 41st minute, guaranteeing a trip to the semifinals.

Obi claimed that Nigeria’s advancement to the All African Cup of Nations, or AFCON, semifinals demonstrates the nation’s ability to triumph above all hardships.

Through his official Twitter account, the former governor of Anambra state sent the Super Eagles his sincere greetings.

Additionally, he predicted that the national football team’s triumph would motivate locals to overcome all challenges, leading to the creation of a completely new Nigeria.

Obi said: “It was truly a delightful and uplifting experience for me today, as I joined other Nigerians to watch Nigeria’s National Team, the Super Eagles, live in Abidjan, Ivory Coast Capital, as they cruised to the semi-final of the ongoing AFCON tournament.

“As always, our dear team, with the strength of an eagle, flew us into the semi-finals, victoriously with a delightful show of patriotism and professionalism. I heartily congratulate our national team, the Super Eagles, for their electrifying performance.

“The energy, passion, and composure they brought into the game were admirable and befitting of our great nation. Their victory today, and in the future, is our victory as a nation. We remain a nation of winners, that no matter how dark the night has been in our land, we will triumph over all our challenges into the New Nigeria of our dreams.

“I must equally salute the excellent sportsmanship of the Angolan team. As fellow Africans, they played a good game and lost gallantly. Congratulations Super Eagles. Congratulations Nigeria.”
