Football loving Nigerians have blamed President Muhammad Buhari as the Super Eagles crashed out of the ongoing AFCON in Cameroon.
Recall that President Buhari, earlier on Sunday, call the Super Eagles camp to wish them good luck ahead of their clash with Tunisia.
The President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, His Excellency @MBuhari @NGRPresident spoke with the entire team today. We are grateful and we will do everything to keep making Nigerians happy. #SoarSuperEagles #Team9jaStrong #AFCON2021 pic.twitter.com/83a4Bg1jok— 🇳🇬 Super Eagles (@NGSuperEagles) January 23, 2022
However, many Nigerian were of the opinion that the President jinx the team.
It must be emphasized that the Super Eagles won all their matches in the group D, with no interference from the presidency.
See Nigerian reactions below….
