The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described the Super Eagles’ victory over the Elephants of Cote D’ Ivoire as a good omen and a sign that the nation will soon surmount all its challenges under the present dispensation.
The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh in a statement on Sunday said the party was overjoyed that the players did not let Nigerians down adding that the victory was an indication that Nigeria is already coming out of the woods in all spheres of life.
The party said the victory over the Elephants, who had in the past stopped the Eagles in the tournament, was an indication that nothing is impossible for Nigeria and that the doors have been opened for the nation to achieve other goals.
“The victory of the Super Eagles is a good omen. It is a sign of good things to come. The PDP sees it as a sign of a new beginning. It shows that we, as a nation can surmount all our problems. It is an indication that there is nothing impossible and that collectively we will overcome all the challenges we are facing as a nation. We will surmount all of them the way we surmounted the Elephants”, he said.
Stating that the victory did not come to it as a surprise, the party called on Nigerians to always believe in the potentials of the nation and urged pessimists to turn a new leaf especially as it has become clear that the country has already started experiencing a new dawn.
The PDP reminded that as a party that has the interest of the nation at heart, it had joined other well-meaning Nigerians in praying for the Eagles. It said the victory showed that God answers prayers.
It however charged the team not to relax at this moment but to increase their zeal as they meet their next opponent in the semi-final stage.
It told the players not to forget that millions of Nigerians are now counting on them to bring the cup home at the end of the tournament adding that they cannot afford to fail the nation at this critical time.
