VP Shettima To Lead Nigeria’s Delegation To Cote D’Ivoire


VP Shettima and Super Eagles

President Bola Tinubu, GCFR, has directed Vice President Kashim Shettima to lead a presidential team to the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) finals in Côte d’Ivoire.

The Vice President had also represented the President at the semi-finals when the Super Eagles defeated South Africa in a pulsating encounter.


The Nigerian national team is set to face host Côte d’Ivoire in a thrilling rematch at the Alassane Ouattara Stadium in Abidjan on Sunday, February 11.

The match will rekindle memories of Nigeria’s 1-0 victory in the group stage, secured through Captain William Troost-Ekong’s penalty.

Unifying Power


Recognising the unifying power of football and the immense role the Super Eagles play in fostering national pride and unity, President Bola Tinubu believes that Vice President Shettima’s presence at the finals alongside the delegation is a testament to the government’s unwavering support for the team and its dedication to their success.

The government therefore calls on all Nigerians, both at home and abroad, to unite in support of the Super Eagles, to raise their voices in encouragement, and to create a wave of national pride that propels the team to glory.
