President Muhammadu Buhari has said that the away victory of the Super Eagles over Zambia at the weekend is not only tonic for Nigeria at a time like this, but also a confidence booster that the indomitable Nigerian spirit is well and alive.
In a statement by Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President (Media & Publicity), the President described the Super Eagles 2-1 victory over Zambia in Ndola, in the team’s first match in the race for qualification for the Russia 2018 World Cup, as “cheery and soul-lifting.”
He said it was a sign of good things to come, urging the team not to rest on its oars till it eventually qualified for the global soccer fiesta.
“This is but the first step in a long journey. However, that step has been well taken. An away victory at this level, in which the stakes are quite high, is remarkable. The ultimate is to qualify for Russia 2018, and fly Nigeria’s flag alongside those of other giant soccer playing nations. I look forward to that, and I urge the team and their handlers to always keep their eyes on the ball,” President Buhari said.
