President Muhammadu Buhari has urged the Super Eagles of Nigeria to continue on its winning ways and go ahead to win the ongoing African Cup of Nation in Cameroon.

The President statement came after Augustine Eguavoen’s men defeated Guinea Bissau in their last game of the group stage on Wednesday night.

Reacting to the victory, the President, while congratulating the soaring eagles, urged them to bring home the cup.

“Congratulations to our Super Eagles on winning all their three games and advancing to the second round of the AFCON in grand style.

“I urge them to maintain and even surpass the terrific form that has made them leaders in the group stage, and to remain good ambassadors of Nigeria on and off the field.

“The entire country looks forward with hope to a total of SEVEN emphatic wins in this competition. Three down, four to go!

“They are assured of my unflinching support as they soar like the Eagles that they are to write yet another brilliant chapter in the unfolding story of Nigerian football,” Buhari said in a statement.

Our motto is: ‘We stand for the truth, irrespective of who tells it’. Driven by this philosophy, our aim has been to create a platform where every voice, every narrative – provided they are decently expressed –  is allowed expression. Our belief is that by promoting unfettered competition of ideas, the truth will eventually emerge. Obviously, doing this while resisting any temptation to be captured by any special interest or tendency makes survival as an online newspaper more challenging. This is why we will appreciate any support from our readers:
