Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun

Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has hailed the victory of the Super Eagles of Nigeria over the Stallions of Burkina Faso, describing it as instructive.

In a press release by his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Mrs Funmi Wakama, Senator Amosun described the success of the Nigerian team as "great", especially coming against all odds.

"It shows that, as a country, we can always achieve our dreams if we are dedicated, committed and unwavering in the face of daunting challenges," the governor said.

Amosun recalled that the Eagles left the shores of Nigeria to the 29th edition of the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in South Africa without being one of the favourites to win the championship but the "can do" spirit of the average Nigerian ensured that the team surmounted all obstacles to win the much-coveted trophy.
