AFCON: Information Minister congratulates Super Eagles for playing in finals



In spite of Nigeria’s loss 2-1 to Côte d’Ivoire, the Minister of Information and National Orientation, Alhaji Mohammed Idris, congratulated the players and officials of Super Eagles for reaching the finals.

Idris in a statement on Sunday in Abuja, said the Super Eagles went to Côte d’Ivoire, flew the nation’s flag high and fought their way to the finals of AFCON 2023.

“Even though we all hoped for a win, and our first AFCON trophy in a decade, it didn’t quite happen that way.

“We believed in you all the way to this stage, and we continue to believe in you. We know that the best is yet to come. We will try again.

“President Bola Tinubu and over 200 million of us, your countrymen and women appreciate your efforts.

“That we got to the finals for the first time since 2013 proves that nothing shall be impossible for Nigeria, when we are united as one nation behind one purpose under God,” Idris said.
