    Cool. What a team! Strength in Unity. Better Together. Congrats to Nigeria, Congrats to eagles


    Solid performance , the players seem to be very objective and focused….Lots of luck to them !!

  • No Federal Character?

    This performance surprises no one. Nigeria has the ability and potential to compete and win ANYTHING amongst the committee of nations IF and ONLY IF it presents its best selected on the basis of ability – merit. Were the Super Eagles a Federal Ministry then the Igbos from the Eastern Nigeria would have been just 1 player or none at all, same for the people of the Southern Nigeria (Niger Delta). But a look at the team shows that these two regions not only produced all 3 goals of the match, but represented 87% of the players on the pitch. Why? No federal character was used but ability to perform.

    Juxtapose the statistic above with political appointments or specific ministries like Defense, Security, Petroleum, Customs and Immigration …and you will find all the Mohammeds and Aminus of the world. It would be better for these regions to leave Nigeria so they can achieve their full potential.
