    Hmmmmm…. This man is truly a man of faith. I like his confidence and it’s this same exuberant confidence and belief that his wards have imbibed hook, line and sinker.

  • Super Eagles are among the favourite for AFCONS any time any day no matter what the circumstances are. The statistics are there to justify that but luck and only God knows who will eventually take the cup if it’s ordain by divine will of almighty.

  • @Oakfield thank God for your life
