President Muhammadu Buhari has lauded the Super Eagles of Nigeria for keeping hope alive in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Cameroon.

The Nigerian team, which won all its group matches, has advanced to the second round of the tournament in grand style.

The President, in a statement issued Wednesday by his spokesman, Femi Adesina, urged the Austin Eguavoen-led team to maintain and even surpass the terrific form that made them leaders in the group stage, as Nigeria hopefully looks forward to a total of seven emphatic wins in this competition.

President Buhari expressed confidence that the positive reputation of good sportsmanship the traveling fans, sportswriters and the football team had demonstrated in Cameroon will continue to enliven the importance of sports, particularly football, as an enabler of development, peace, tolerance, friendship and cooperation.

The President, who wished the Super Eagles the very best, promised that his administration would continue to support the efforts of international, regional and national football organisations to use the sport as a tool to build a better and peaceful world.
