Nigeria Proud of You, Sports Minister Enoh Assures Iwobi


Nigerian minister for sports, John Enoh, has assured Super Eagles midfielder, Alex Iwobi that Nigeria is proud of him and his contributions to the Super Eagles in the just concluded AFCON tourney.

Enoh also assured Iwobi that the majority of Nigerians are also proud of him, urging him to ignore those criticising him on social media.

In the video posted by Akpos, a Nigerian comedian on his X handle on Tuesday, Iwobi responded to Enoh’s statement by saying, “I have taken myself off social media for now, I am not aware of this.”

Iwobi has been facing criticisms from some Nigerian fans on social media following the defeat of Nigeria at the African Cup of Nations final at the hands of the host, Ivory Coast, on Sunday.

The Super Eagles were defeated 2-1 by the hosts, ending the team’s dream of a fourth continental crown.

A few hours after the tournament, Iwobi deleted photos from his Instagram handle but left one video post.

The Fulham star also locked the comment section of the post
