The Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has hailed Nigeria’s team, Super Eagles for their performance at the just concluded 2024 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Côte d’Ivoire.
Sanwo-Olu said the Super Eagles despite losing at the final of the AFCON to the host nation, Cote d’Ivoire, deserve commendation for their superb performance in the competition.
Governor Sanwo-Olu in a statement issued on his behalf by his chief press secretary, Mr. Gboyega Akosile, Monday commended the players, the coaching crew and the entire management of the team for making Nigeria proud at the competition by reaching the final against all odds.
He said the Super Eagles fought gallantly to advance to the final of the Africa Cup of Nations by defeating many countries, noting that the participation of the team in the final on Sunday was a testament to the determination, resilience and commitment of the Super Eagles to the competition.
The Governor urged Nigerians who have looked forward to Nigeria winning the AFCON Cup for the fourth time not to be discouraged by the outcome of the match against Côte d’Ivoire.
