Reps congratulate Super Eagles on AFCON performance

The House of Representatives has congratulated the Super Eagles of Nigeria for clinching the silver prize at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations for the fifth time.

The spokesman for the house, Akin Rotimi (APC-Ekiti State), in a statement on Monday, said that the lawmakers celebrate the players and coaching crew for their spirited display in Cote’d Ivoire.

He said that the lawmakers are particularly delighted with the performance of team captain William Ekong, who emerged as ‘Man of the Competition’.

The Super Eagles, based on their performance at the tournament, deserved victory but narrowly lost the AFCON trophy.

“Nevertheless, they have proven that Nigeria remains the giant of Africa in sports and other endeavors.

“During the tournament, Nigerians showed that we are one great nation. Nigerians are proud of you,” the Speaker told the Super Eagles at the end of the game,” he said.

Rotimi said that the achievement of the Super Eagles would inspire not just the multitude of sports talents across the country but countrymen and women in other spheres of influence to do more for their fatherland.

He said that the country has been more united by their sterling performance at the tournament, commending the Super Eagles for giving a good account of themselves during the games.

Speaker Abbas adds that the house, under his leadership, will continue to support programs and policies that promote sports and youth development.

CDA News reports that the Eagles lost 2-1 to the Elephants of Ivory Coast – the host nation, in a tense, anticipated final match.
