ABUJA, (CAJ News) – THE victory by the national Under 17 team at the football World Cup is a bold statement by the youth against a series of negative utterances and actions of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC) government in the international arena.
This is according to the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, said the victory was a “clear demonstration” that Nigeria was endowed with enormous talent and potential waiting to be exhibited to the entire world.
The party said the victory further expresses the resilient spirit of Nigerians despite a discouraging government that has not only shown an obvious inability to chart a clear course of governance and the future of the youth, but also refused to acknowledge the potentials in its citizens.
“The time has come for us to dwell less on our negatives but to showcase the positives, the talents and indeed the natural resources waiting to be harnessed and exhibited for foreign investments and participation in our
economy,” Metuh said.
The party added that the victory should be a wake up call on Buhari to recognise the hard working spirit of Nigerians with overflowing talents and well-developed natural endowments.
Nigeria won 2-0 over Mali.
