"Once again, I congratulate Nigerians for this sweet victory and pray that it will re-awaken the patriotism in all of us," Oni said.

This sweet and well-deserved victory is a testimony that with the right attitude and spirit, determination, doggedness, and the will to fight for victory, we will always win and rise above whatever the difficulties or challenges that may want to hold us down. "
Amaechi urge Nigerians to emulate the Eagles and replicate this victory in other spheres of life and our national polity

 Ogun State governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has hailed the victory of the Super Eagles of Nigeria over the Stallions of Burkina Faso, describing it as instructive.

  In a press release by his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Mrs Funmi Wakama, Senator Amosun described the success of the Nigerian team as "great", especially coming against all odds.

  "It shows that, as a country, we can always achieve our dreams if we are dedicated, committed and unwavering in the face of daunting challenges," the governor said.

Amosun recalled that the Eagles left the shores of Nigeria to the 29th edition of the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in South Africa without being one of the favourites to win the championship but the "can do" spirit of the average Nigerian ensured that the team surmounted all obstacles to win the much-coveted trophy.

"Our dream of a great and united nation is always within our reach and attainment if we are committed and regard our challenges as mere stepping stones to the much-desired destination," Amosun said.

While congratulating the Eagles and entire country for the 2013 AFCON success, Amosun restated the determination of his administration to continue to invest massively in the mental and physical development of its youths so that they could continue to win laurels for the state and Nigeria in general.

 Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State has congratulated the Super Eagles of Nigeria on their victory at the Nations Cup Football competition hosted by South Africa. 
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Peter Okhiria, Comrade Oshiomhole said “the victory of the Eagles is a reflection of the can-do spirit which makes Nigerians stand out anywhere in the World”.

According to him, “Nigerians were united, in prayers, for the success of the Super Eagles throughout the competition and we should build on this victory to dwell on what unites us as a people rather than on what divides us.

“The Super Eagles have demonstrated that with team work, working closely together, we can lift our nation to an enviable level in the comity of nations.
“I congratulate the Super Eagles and their team of coaches for making Nigerians proud and giving us all something to rejoice about.”
