BREAKING: President Tinubu Hosts Super Eagles In Aso Rock, Confers MON National Honour On Players

Published

on

On Tuesday morning, President Bola Tinubu honored the Super Eagles with the Member of the Order of the Niger (MON) national award for their performance at the recently concluded AFCON 2023 competition in Ivory Coast. The President welcomed the national football team, Super Eagles, at the Council Chambers of the State House in Abuja, following their loss in the AFCON 2023 final in Côte d’Ivoire two days prior.

All team members and officials, including Alex Iwobi, attended the event, despite the cyber-attacks he faced from Nigerian internet users who believed he underperformed in the final match. Cyberbullying of Nigerian footballers following match losses has become a prevalent issue in the country. Ahead of the event, team captain and forward player Ahmed Musa had urged Nigerians and football enthusiasts to cease cyberbullying directed at Alex Iwobi.

Musa penned a message, stating, “Dear supporters, I kindly request that you cease the cyber harassment aimed at Alex Iwobi. Cyberbullying not only breaches decency but also constitutes a significant offense. It’s contradictory to espouse the unity football brings while participating in such conduct.”

“Facing defeat in a game is undeniably challenging, but singling out one player for the team’s overall performance is unjust and unfair. We succeed together and face setbacks together. Alex put in his best effort on the field, just like every other member of our team. Rather than spreading negativity, let’s demonstrate genuine love and backing for our players. They require our support now more than ever. Let’s inspire each other and remain unified, whether in triumph or defeat.”
