In a significant show of support for Nigeria’s Super Eagles in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2023, governors affiliated with the All Progressives Congress (APC) have generously contributed N200 million. The timely donation comes just before the Super Eagles face off against South Africa in the highly anticipated semi-final clash.
Minister of Sports, John Owan Enoh, expressed appreciation for the prompt response of the APC governors, specifically highlighting Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State, who serves as the chairman of the Progressive Governors’ Forum. The financial boost is intended to motivate and bolster the morale of the national soccer team as they strive for success in the prestigious tournament.
Senator Enoh acknowledged the Super Eagles’ unwavering commitment and tenacity displayed throughout the competition. He emphasized the responsibility placed on the team to bring home the coveted AFCON Cup, urging the entire nation to rally behind them in this crucial moment.
The AFCOM semi-final clash between the Super Eagles and South Africa’s Bafana Bafana is scheduled to take place at Stade Bouaké in Bouaké, Cote d’Ivoire. The APC governors’ donation is expected to serve as a morale booster for the team as they prepare for this critical encounter, with eyes set on securing a spot in the final on February 11 in Abidjan.
This generous gesture underscores the importance of national unity and the role of sports in fostering a sense of pride and patriotism. As the Super Eagles aim to conquer the continent once again, the support from the APC governors is anticipated to fuel the team’s determination on the pitch.
