    To me, this remains the most fiercely contested nations cup with lots of engaging dramas. Congrats to all -players, management and fans as well. Let’s also appreciate the government for the encouragement given to sports encapsulated in the activities of the Sports Ministry. That said, the country is blessed with astute sportsmen/women from North to South; East to West so it’s beckoning on the government of Tinubu/Shettima to undertake a holistic restructuring to affect not just security, economy but sporting activities as well. Let’s have regionalized form of competition from where those who distinguished themselves will then be picked to make up our national team. This is sure to eliminate nepotistic selection of players to a more and ideal merit based selection.
