“Keep making Nigerians happy” – Buhari tells Super Eagles via video call ahead of Tunisia encounter

President Muhammadu Buhari has urged the Super Eagles of Nigeria to keep making Nigerians happy in the ongoing African Cup of Nations tournament as they face off the Carthage Eagles of Tunisia at Roumdé Adjia Stadium, Garoua, Cameroon, by 8pm on Sunday.

Charging the team in a video call, Buhari tipped the Super Eagles to come out victorious as he mentioned two of the key players: Kelechi Iheanacho and Moses Simon.

The president, however, urged the entire team to continue making Nigerians happy, not only by winning the second round match, but to eventually lift the trophy.

“You’ve been doing Nigeria proud. You’ve been winning. Please keep on winning. The Federal Government is supporting you, and I say thank you to all the technical crew and the players.. Please keep doing the country proud,” Femi Adesina, presidential spokesman, quoted Buhari to have said.
