Some Nigerians on Twitter are blaming President Muhammadu Buhari for the Super Eagles’ unfortunate exit from the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.
According to them, Nigeria failed to advance to the next stage because President Buhari jinxed the Super Eagle when he interacted with the players on the phone prior to their match against Tunisia.
They argue that the Super Eagles were insurmountable in the tournament until the phone call that changed the narrative.
Nigeria was the only side in West Africa to win all three group games in the 2021 AFCON. They beat Egypt, Sudan and Guinea-Bissau to progress to the round of 16.
But on Sunday, January 23, Tunisia blew Nigeria out of the ongoing AFCON tournament in Cameroon. Nigeria lost by a goal to nil.
Should’ve spoken to only the coach who would then go relay your @MBuhari useless greetings to the team.— U. F. O. (@FrankZephyr1) January 24, 2022
