Following the second place finishing of the Super Eagles in the African Cup of Nations (AFCON), tournament, Peter Obi has said that the eventual outcome of the game did not in any way remove the fact that Nigeria is a home of talents, as exemplified by the Nigerian team.

He expressed this via his official X handle on Monday night saying, “Once again, our players, with their outstanding performance, energy, and zeal, reflected the resilient spirit of the Nigerian people, the giants of Africa, who even in the face of obstacles continue to persevere to success, in every area of life. It was a fierce battle on the football pitch, and I salute their professionalism, dedication, and drive for success.

“I sincerely appreciate, and congratulate the Nigeria Football Federation, the Super Eagles Coach, the management, the technical and medical crew, and all who sacrificed tirelessly to actualize our victory today. Their labours were not in vain.”

Obi pointed that just as Nigerians stood together in support of the Super Eagles till the end, Nigeria can be built as Nigerians unite together.

“Today, as a nation, the fire of unity was rekindled among us, as we all united as one big family to support our national team and pray for their victory. In our journey to the New Nigeria we look forward to, we must unite as one, and collectively build our nation. We will overcome all the challenges that contend with our progress if we unite.”

Obi also penned a condolence note to Nigerians who lost their lives during Nigeria and South Africa Match.

“To our fellow compatriots who lost their lives in the course of the football matches, we remember and mourn them today. These our countrymen, wishing nothing but victory to our dear nation, lost their lives while praying for our victory. 

“We are saddened that they are not physically with us today to witness the great show of sportsmanship displayed by our national team.

May God grant them eternal rest and grant their families, and all of us, the fortitude to bear their irreplaceable loss.”

He extended his hearty congratulations to Ivory Coast saying, “I say a very big congratulations to the AFCON Champions, Cote d’Ivoire. They fought gallantly and emerged winners at the end. I salute them and wish them and their nation the very best as we all continue to build the New Africa we all desire.”
