The Retired Army Boss stated this while speaking at the training camp of the Super Eagles on the efforts made by the representative of the federal government of Nigeria with the government in the northern region at the ongoing African Cup of Nations tournament.

They acceded to all our requests and the result is what we are seeing. Garoua is a second home for all Nigerians supporting the Super Eagles and I strongly believe that many people will appreciate the good people of Cameroon during and after the championship. My joy is to see the team lifting the trophy here and I believe the NFF, Coaching Crew and the players will make it happen for the entire nation” The former Army Boss submitted
“Super Eagles feels at home here and of course the entire Nigerian Community. We always mobilize people on match day to turn up in their green and white outfits to support the Super Eagles.”
