Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Aminu Tambuwal and his party, PDP Sunday hailed the Super Eagles over the victory against Cote d’Ivoire in the quarter finals of the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations taking place in South Africa.

In a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs, Malam Imam Imam, Tambuwal said the fighting spirit shown by the Eagles would no doubt lead the team to lift the trophy.

He said Sunday’s victory was all the more sweet because the players not only won the match, they did so convincingly by controlling the play and neutralising the so-called big name players in the Ivorien team.

According to him, the unity of purpose shown by the team only reaffirmed the notion that when all hands are on deck, achieving a common objective will be easier than expected.
