Amidst Nigeria’s absence in Qatar for the ongoing football World Cup fiesta, a former federal lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani, has advised Nigerians to support Ghana to win the competition.
Sani said he is aware it would be difficult for Nigerians to support Ghana.
Recall that Ghana’s Black Stars ousted Nigeria’s Super Eagles en route to qualifications for the World Cup.
The former lawmaker said Ghana did not deny Nigeria the chance to go to Qatar, noting that they should not blame Ghana as it assembled the best team against the Super Eagles.
Taking to his verified Twitter handle, he wrote: “Nigerians should support Ghana to win. I know it’s difficult to do so. They didn’t deny us the chance of going to Qatar. They simply assembled their best players and played better. I don’t know if the ones who played for us were our best. #FIFAWorldCup.”
