There is currently a buzz on social media following comments by the Nigeria Football Federation
(NFF) to win the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations for President Bola Tinubu.

NFF speaking through its president, Ibrahim Gusau, had said Super Eagles semi-finals qualification can be attributed to Tinubu’s Renewed Hope Agenda.

Recall prior to the game against Angola in the quarter-final, Tinubu had a video conference call with the players.

“You heard what he said. He said, ‘Boys go there, believe in me. You don’t have any problem and whatever issues you are facing, just believe in me. Go and do the job and you’ll see the result.’

“That’s exactly what he told them; you can see them doing the job. By the grace of God, I know he is going to reward them handsomely, which has never happened before in the history of Nigeria.

“We promised him that we were going to give him the trophy, and by the grace of God, we are going to do just that. We have just two matches to go and by the grace of God we will continue to do what we are doing.

“We call on all Nigerians to pray for us because prayer is the key to whatever we are doing. So, we call on all Nigerians to continue to support us with prayers,” he said.

Following the report, some Nigerians have taken to social media to react:

In a post via X, on Mallam Jabir, writing via @Mallam_jabeer, said: “For Tinibu???? As in how???? I don’t understand 🤔”

@Al_Must3rph3r said: “That’s why I stopped supporting them😂 I’m not with Super Eagle💯💯”

@ML_Dumbulwa: “Tinubu or all the Nigerias 🇳🇬

@Manuel99998215: “Point of correction- They will win for Nigeria (Nigerians).”

@GbolahanShoks: “Winning it first for Nigeria before Tinubu? Hypocrates in highest order, looking for cheap publicity. Indirectly, he is praying for the team to lose.”

@ikemchrismount: “Make dem no win again.. we re ok we the stage wey dem dey.”

@DonaldAkawor: “What is Tinubu winning for Nigerians/super eagles players? Nothing but hardship and frustration, we are winning for ourselves not for Tinubu. You can see we are all struggling in Nigeria to attain ends meet without Gov’t.”

@muhammadkolo_: “Eagles Will Win 2023 AFCON Trophy For Nigerians. Now fixed🤷🏾‍♂️”

@charlesPet7: “NFF should not tag Tinubu with Super eagles. Please don’t tag this Boys with Tinubu because it can even get them angry and play nonsense. The best headline should have been “Super Eagles will win the AFCON trophy for Nigerians who are angry because of Tinubu” NFF stay away abeg”

@okheime73: “Not for Nigetians but for Tinubu….hmmmm.”

@tonykosi2∅1∅53∅: “How? Not for Nigerian again? Is one man more Nigerian than others.”

@geulink: “If they winn, it’s for Nigerians and not only Tinubu. They will make the money and get better offer from clubs and Nigerians will celebrate.”

@UtagherM: “That’s how they do. Let the Eagles be. Until, they wi. The AFCON, this isn’t necessary. This is another form of sycophancy.”

@speello63∅81: “They will win for Nigerians.”

@MorahBless2459o: “Win for Tinubu abii Nigerians? What will I not hear.”.…CONTINUE.FULL.READING>>>
