Speaking on behalf of the squad, Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa has invited President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to attend the ongoing 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Ivory Coast and support the team instead of watching their matches on television.
In a Zoom discussion with Sen. John Owan Enoh, the Minister of Sports Development, on Wednesday, Musa delivered this message.
Musa stated, “We have a message that we are going to send to you [Enoh] to the President. We don’t want him to watch the game on TV anymore; we want him over here [Ivory Coast] to come and cheer us together. So this is our own message to the President.”
In response, Enoh assured the team that the president would indeed attend.
He said, “The president will come. I can assure you the president will come. He has told me when he wants to come, and my prayer is that gradually we are going to get to the point where the President can come. He will come. I will bring the president; he will come.”
