The Super Eagles’ triumph in the AFCON quarterfinals was attributed by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to President Bola Tinubu’s “renewed hope agenda.”

The NFF president, Ibrahim Gusau, made this statement on Saturday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Abidjan.

The Super Eagles defeated giant-killers Angola 1-0 in Abidjan on Friday, earning a spot in the AFCON semi-finals.

This came after Moses Simon provided a superb assist, sneaking in a pass that allowed Ademola Lookman to score Nigeria’s lone goal in the 41st minute with ease past goalkeeper Guilherme da Costa.

Gusau thanked President Tinubu for his assistance to the Super Eagles.

He said that the president’s unwavering support for the club demonstrated his dedication to the advancement of sports, particularly football.

“What he said, you heard. “Boys go there, believe in me,” he exclaimed.

“Just believe in me, no matter what problems you are facing, you don’t have any.” Do the task, and you will observe the outcome.

He instructed them precisely that, and you can see them carrying out his instructions.

“With God’s favor, I am confident that he will lavishly reward them, something that has never occurred in Nigerian history.

“We are going to fulfill our promise to him and give him the trophy, with God’s grace,” he said.

The head of the NFF urged all Nigerians to keep cheering on the team.

With God’s grace, we shall finish the remaining two matches like we are now doing.

We want everyone in Nigeria to pray for us, as we believe that prayer is the foundation of all we do.

Therefore, he stated, “we call on all Nigerians to continue to support us with prayers and by God’s grace.”

NFF Executive Board member Aisha Falode stated that the organization was operating in accordance with President Tinubu’s directive, which was for them to go win the cup for Nigeria.

We are following through on our directive to “go win the cup for Nigeria.”

It’s a catchphrase for revitalized hope.

“A revitalized Super Eagles for a revitalized Nigeria with a single goal: returning the 2023 AFCON trophy to Nigeria so that Nigerians can rejoice.”

That is our plan of action. We’re headed to the championship game. We adore Nigeria,” she declared.

According to NAN, Nigeria’s opponent for a spot in the final is the victor of this Saturday’s quarterfinal between Cape Verde and South Africa.

The competition in Cote d’Ivoire, which got underway on January 13, will end on February 11.
