A former Special Assistant to ex President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri have opined that many babies would be convinced in Nigeria on Tuesday as Nigerians celebrated Super Eagles victory against Egypt at the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON in Cameroon.
Kelechi Iheanacho scored the only goal of the match in the 34th minute to hand coach Augustine Eguavoen his first victory in his first match since his reapportionment as Super Eagles coach on December 12, 2021.
Reacting to the victory, Mr Omokri commended the tactical display by the team and described the performance as the best so far in the tournament.
“I like what our boys did to Salah. He was off his game because our boys were on top of theirs. To me, this is the best performance of AFCON 2021 so far. Iheanacho was obviously the Man of the Match, though Moses was the life of the team.
“This is the first time Egypt lost a first round in an AFCON in a long time! The mood in Nigeria is good. So good, that I fear lots of babies may be conceived today (Tuesday),” he said.
He added that the victory came at a time some Nigerians are facing insecurity challenges.
“We really needed this bit of good news after a week of calamity in other spheres of our national life!”
He also alluded to Biblical stories About Prophet Moses adding that “Apparently, Moses is still a problem to the Egyptians as he was 4500 years ago.
“One Moses was used by God to part the Red Sea and swallow the Egyptians. Another one was used to part the goal post and bury the Egyptians.
“Either way, we are most grateful to God!”
Nigeria will take on Sudan in their second match in Group D on Saturday, January 15, 2022.
