Babafemi Raji, the media officer for the Super Eagles, has expressed that it is high time for Nigerians to find something to celebrate during the ongoing 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Ivory Coast.

Raji spoke during an interview on Channels Television on Friday morning ahead of Nigeria’s AFCON quarter-final clash with Angola.

According to him, Nigerians have been speaking with one voice since the 2023 AFCON started last month.

“We are mentally ready for this game. I remember yesterday we had a meeting, it was more emotional where we had greetings from loved ones with the players and coaches wishing the team well,” Raji said.

“The emotions are already there. The pressure is fine, we know we have a family behind us. We know we have millions of Nigerians rooting for us, we know as Nigerians we have to give ourselves a gift at the start of the year 2024.

“We know that a lot has been going on. It is time to even have something to celebrate and make us speak one voice. Since this tournament started, Nigerians have been speaking with one voice.

“We know the pressure is there but we are doing everything to match up with the expectations and surpass it. The AFCON trophy is our target. We want to win it.”
