President Buhari has commended the Super Eagles of Nigeria for keeping hope alive in the ongoing AFCON in Cameroon by winning all their group matches and advancing to the second round of the tournament in grand style.

In a statement signed by Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President Buhari (Media & Publicity), he urged the Austin Eguavoen-led team to maintain and even surpass the terrific form that made them leaders in the group stage, as Nigeria hopefully looks forward to a total of seven emphatic wins in this competition.

The statement added that: “President Buhari trusts that the positive reputation of good sportsmanship the traveling fans, sportswriters and the football team have demonstrated in Cameroon will continue to enliven the importance of sports, particularly football, as an enabler of development, peace, tolerance, friendship and cooperation.”
