The Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Udom Emmanuel, has said that Friday’s victory of Nigeria’s Super Eagles over the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon was the result of fasting and prayer.
“The victory of Super Eagles today against The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon is a testament to the fact that whenever we go on our knees and seek the face of God like we did today during our fasting and prayer session, God will answer our prayer,” the governor wrote on Facebook after the match.
“Congratulations to ‘Akwaibomites’, congratulations to Nigerians. Together we are rising to the faith of our greatness!” Mr Emmanuel added.
He also shared the comment on Twitter.
The Super Eagles had thrashed their longstanding rivals 4-0 in a high-stakes 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital, taking a closer step towards qualification.
