    One thing I like about president Buhari is his love for local fibrics and general local content policy. I won’t be surprised to start seeing the SE wearing native materials as jerseys in coming months. Lolz.

      Lol. You never talk of employing a native coach for the Super Eagles you are talking about native material jerseys. LMFAO.

        Na the same thing, you are both right. Hopefully soon, government go just announce Eguavoen as the substantive head coach of Nigeria.
