The representative of Alimosho Constituency II in the Lagos State House of Assembly, Mr. Kehinde Olaide Joseph has praised the Nigerian Super Eagles for their impressive performance in the ongoing TotalEnergies CAF African Cup of Nations.

He specifically commended their success in defeating the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon in the Round of Sixteen, which qualified them for the quarter finals.

According to Kehinde Joseph, this victory demonstrates the team’s ability to defeat any African team.

He also lauded the team for their disciplined tactics, relentless attacking style, and strong defensive capabilities, which ultimately led to a well-deserved victory at the historic Felix Houphouet Boigny Stadium in Abidjan, Ivory Coast.

“As you face the Palancas Negras of Angola tomorrow in the Quarter Final match tomorrow, know that your win is not just a victory on the pitch, it will be a victory for the entire Nigeria.

“As Super Eagles, you have to unite Nigerians under the banner of football, with that, you are reminding us of the collective strength and resilience that resides within us as a people”, he declared.

As the team matches towards the potential fourth continental title, the Chairman House Committee on Public Account (State) expressed his unreserved support and urged the players to “give their absolute best in the tomorrow’s and remaining matches.”

“While I congratulate you for advancing to this stage of the competition, I urge you not to be complacent but continue to be focused and resilient. We are behind you and all Nigerians are supporting you. Do not look back but go on and bring home the trophy.”

The grassroot lawmaker also urged the Nigerians at home and abroad to continue supporting the Super Eagles with unwavering passion and belief.
