Enoh: Nigerians Expects Super Eagles To Win AfCON Trophy In Cote d’Ivoire 

Minister of Sports, John Enoh, has disclosed that Nigeria expects the  Super Eagles to emerge from Group A, which includes the host nation, Cote d’Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea and Guinea-Bissau, and go ahead to win the trophy with Thursday’s draw of the African Cup of Nations (AfCON).

Addressing newsmen on Friday after  meeting with President Bola Tinubu at the State House in Abuja, Enoh said all efforts will be made to rally the nation behind them for the required solidarity and support, saying that when they know that they have massive home support, it will encourage them to perform well.

The Minister noted that for a country that has not won the AfCON for a long time, Super Eagles have the desire to and determination to win again, “which means they must prepare very well.”

Enoh announced that President Tinubu has approved a national campaign christened “Let’s Do It Again” to mobilize resources for the Super Eagles for a successful tournament.

According to him: “By the time they know that the whole country is behind them, they will have added fire power. The country’s expectation is that they will win the cup and bring it back to Nigeria. That’s the idea of the campaign. It will be a morale booster”.

The Minister explained that the idea of  ‘Let’s Do It Again’ campaign is also to mobilize resources from the private sector to support the national team such that government funds would not be needed to prosecute the tournament.
