In a press release signed by the special adviser to the President on media & publicity, Reuben Abati, the President commends the courage, patriotism, determination and dedication to national service exhibited by the Super Eagles today to all other Nigerians.

He urges the team to maintain their exemplary commitment to national duty until ultimate victory in the continental soccer championship for home-based players is achieved.

President Jonathan assures the team and its handlers that they will continue to receive the fullest possible support from the Federal Government and all Nigerians as they strive to add the African Nations Championship trophy to the African Nations Cup which Nigeria won last year.

He joins all other patriotic and proud Nigerians in praying for the success of the team in the semi-finals and finals of the tournament.


  1. Tukut as chaiman of Nigerian Railway means the perinial problems of the corporation is far from being over. Tukur has no solution to the problem he can’t salvage the problem rather he will compound it. A lesson should have been drawn from Tukur/ PDP crises, in other hand it shows lack of focus and insight on the GEJ. Old wine inside Old bottle. May God deliver us. Amen
