Tinubu Receives Super Eagles at Aso Villa

President Bola Tinubu is hosting the Super Eagles, Nigeria’s national football team, at the State House Council Chambers.

This visit of the Jose Peseiro and his boys is coming barely 48 hours after Super Eagles failed to win the 2024 Africa Cup of Nation title against host nation, Côte d’Ivoire.

Everyone on the squad, including officials, was present.

Nigeria succumbed to Cote d’Ivoire’s Elephants in the AFCON finals on Sunday.

Tinubu praised the team, coach, crew, and entire management team for their “hard work, assiduity, and sacrifice to come this far in the tournament,” acknowledging the hurdles they consistently overcame with steadily improving performance as they advanced to the finals.

The President had urged Nigerians to be of good cheer, stressing that “we won a great victory in the hearts of Africa and the world by our grit, rigour, and determination in the field of play.”

“Let this passing event not dispirit us but bring us together to work harder. We are a great nation bound as one by the green-white-green banner of resilience, joy, hope, duty, and untiring love.

“To those cherished Nigerian youths expressing their gifts in communities, drawing lines in the sand as they play football in their humble rectangles of play, you can be our heroes tomorrow, do not relent in your pursuit. My administration is here to make dreams come true,” Tinubu had said.
