Continue winning streak, Buhari charges Super Eagles

President Muhammadu Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has urged the Super Eagles to keep up the momentum of winning by keeping hope alive in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

Speaking at the backdrop of the team winning all their group matches and advancing to the second round of the tournament in grand style.

The President urges 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.

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.

The President wishes the Super Eagles the very best, pledging that his administration would continue to support the efforts of international, regional and national football organisations to use the sport as a tool to build a better and peaceful world.
