Tinubu To Super Eagles: You Have Proved That Our Greatest Strength Lies In Our Diversity

President Bola Tinubu says the Super Eagles of Nigeria have demonstrated by their team spirit and discipline at the Africa Cup of Nations in Côte d’Ivoire that diversity is principally a source of strength.

Speaking at a reception in honour of the players at the State House in Abuja, on Tuesday, the President commended the team for their exemplary display of unity, determination, and resilience on the field.

He emphasized the pride Nigerians felt in the Super Eagles’ remarkable journey throughout the competition.

”It is a great honour for me to receive you, our Super Eagles. As a team, you taught us lessons on resilience, togetherness, diversity, and excitement in competitive games.

”You started the tournament as if Nigeria would not assert itself, but you progressed to the finals. Through all the challenges and dealing with great humidity in the host country, you left your clubs and honoured your country. You gave us great excitement.

”You were determined. We salute your resilience. You lifted our spirits, and you made us proud. You made us smile as Nigerians.

”It is not easy to absorb a loss, particularly when the expectations are high. But you have demonstrated sportsmanship, resilience, and teamship throughout the entire tournament. That is what AFCON stands for, the unity and resilience of the continent. You have done a great job, and I am very proud of you,” the President stated.

We have to grow our local league, and I promise to be a super promoter of sports in our country. Many of you may in the future become managers of our local.”
