A statement on Saturday from the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Communications, Stanley Nkwocha, noted that having represented President Bola Tinubu at the semi-finals last week, where Nigeria defeated South Africa, Shettima heads back to Abidjan for the title decider.

“Recognising the unifying power of football and the immense role the Super Eagles play in fostering national pride and unity, the President, His Excellency, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, believes that Vice President Shettima’s presence at the finals alongside the delegation is a testament to the government’s unwavering support for the team and its dedication to their success.

“The Federal Government calls on all Nigerians, both at home and abroad, to unite in support of the Super Eagles, and to raise their voices in encouragement, and create a wave of national pride that propels the team to glory,” the statement noted.
