The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has promised to host Edo-born 2023 African Footballer of the Year, Victor Osimhen, and other Super Eagles players of Edo origin after the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) competition taking place in Ivory Coast.

Obaseki said this while speaking to journalists in Benin City, the Edo State capital, shortly after the Super Eagles defeated the Bafana Bafana of South Africa 4-2 on penalties after a 1-1 score line in regulation time.

Obaseki watched the match at Ring Road, one of the viewing centers set up by the government for free live transmission of the AFCON semi-final clash between Nigeria and South Africa.

“We can’t thank Osimhen enough and all these young stars. They have made Nigerians proud. We are very glad and happy over the final outcome of the game. My administration has the intention of inviting Victor Osimhen to Edo State after the end of the tournament.”

On his part, the Chief of Staff to Edo State Governor, Dr. Osaigbovo Iyoha, said, “Congratulations Nigerians, Congratulations Super Eagles; See you in the finals. This game was a wonderful one and we want to thank Governor Obaseki for creating the atmosphere for Edo people to watch the match.”
