AFCON: EAGLES’ VICTORY, CONFIRMATION OF A NEW ERA IN NIGERIA – PDP
The Super Eagles' victory at the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in South Africa is a confirmation that Nigeria has entered a new era of possibilities, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has said.
This is contained in a statement issued on Monday in Abuja and signed by Mr Olisa Metuh, the National Publicity Secretary of the party.
The statement said the victory was an indication that the nation would surmount its challenges under the current dispensation.
It said the fact that the team won the trophy, which has eluded the country for many years, “shows that nothing is impossible for the country”.
The statement added that the victory had opened the doors for the nation to achieve other goals.
“It is an indication that there is nothing impossible and that collectively we will overcome all the challenges we are facing as a nation,” Metuh said.
The Super Eagles on Sunday beat the Stallions of Bukina Faso 1-0 to win the trophy for the third time.
Nigeria won the cup for the first time in 1980. It last won it in 1994. (NAN)
