Press Statement
Keep Up The Tempo, Rivers PDP Chairman, Bro. Felix Obuah Charges
Gallant Super Eagles
As celebrations rock the length and breadth of Nigeria following the
2-nil victory of the Super Eagles over their Iceland counterpart in
the ongoing World Cup in Russia, a sports philanthropist and Rivers
State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bro. Felix Obuah
has praised the resilience of the boys and charged them to sustain the
tempo as they look forward to their next opponents.
Bro. Obuah in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and
Publicity, Jerry Needam said the victory should spur the brave Eagles
to greater performance as they tackle Argentina in their final group
match, Tuesday.
“That truth is that that opening loss to Croatia brought us anxieties
and Nigerians went into prayers to seek God’s intervention, which is
why this victory against Iceland comes as a great relief.
“Therefore, my advice to these gallant Eagles is to use this well
deserved victory over Iceland as a tonic and beat Argentina who are
already demoralized due to the trouncing suffered in the hands of
Croatia”, Obuah said, adding that a victory over Argentina, regardless
of the margin, would put Eagles on a good stead.
He described Argentina as ‘familiar customers’ who are yet to recover
from the trouncing suffered in the hands of the Super Eagles in a
recent international friendly, urging the Eagles to demonstrate to the
world that that superlative performance was never a fluke.
Bro. Obuah who is also the President/Sole Sponsor of Go-Round FC of
Omoku, a side plying its trade in the Nigerian Professional League,
urged the Super Eagles to realize that they not only fly the flag of
Nigeria but that of Africa, adding that progressing into the next
round would keep hopes alive for the nation and continent.
“With Morocco and Egypt already out of the tournament, all eyes are
now on the Super Eagles and Senegal since Tunisia is currently sitting
on a precarious position having recorded no win yet.  We are trusting
that you will do us proud once more”, he said.
The State PDP Chairman who is also Sole Administrator of Rivers State
Waste Management Agency (RIWAMA) urged Super Eagles to keep the faith
as he and millions of Nigerians are not relenting in prayers to God,
restating that nothing is impossible with God.
