President Bola Tinubu is set to host the Super Eagles team on Tuesday at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
Recall that the Super Eagles lost 2-1 to the host Ivory Coast at the finals of the 2023 African Nations Cup (AFCON) tournament on Sunday night.
After the game, President Tinubu had saluted the Super Eagles for their tenacious performance in the final of the Nations Cup.
President Tinubu, in a statement on Monday morning by his spokesman, Ajuri Ngelale, commended the team, the coach, the crew, and the entire management team for their hard work, assiduity, and sacrifice to come this far in the tournament, acknowledging the hurdles they consistently surpassed with steadily improving performance as they pulled through to the finals.
The President urged Nigerians to be of good cheer, emphasising that we won a great victory in the hearts of Africa and the world by our grit, rigour, and determination in the field of play.
“Let this passing event not dispirit us, but bring us together to work harder. We are a great nation bound as one by the green-white-green banner of resilience, joy, hope, duty, and untiring love.
“To those cherished Nigerian youths expressing their gifts in communities, drawing lines in the sand as they play football in their humble rectangles of play, you can be our heroes tomorrow, do not relent in your pursuit. My administration is here to make dreams come true,” the President stated.
