Russia 2018: Nigerians blame Pres Buhari for Eagles loss

Russia 2018: Nigerians blame Pres Buhari for Eagles loss

Nigeria’s Super Eagles were humbled 2-0 by Croatia in their opening game at the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia.

A first half own goal by Oghenekaro Etebo and Luka Modric’s second half penalty inflicted the excruciating pains of defeat on the subdued Nigerians in Kaliningrad.

As painful as the result was to millions of Nigerians, many of them took to Twitter to vent their anger and displeasure, sometimes in comical manners.

What caught my eye was a post by the official handle of the Presidency @NGRPresident which revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari spoke with the players before the game.

As expected, Nigerians revisited the above tweet after the match to give the President their feedback.

This respondent was fearless in informing the President of the result, in our local parlance.

And there was nothing innocent about this tweet by the man called Innocent who stated it so simply:

Talk of dereliction of duty by the President? Or, what is this man suggesting?

But this, got to me. Implying that Mr President might be guilty of cheating?

But here is a respectful Nigerian who just drops a passionate advice for the President.

There was also a stern warning for PMB.

For the road and just in case the President refuses to heed his followers’ warning, this lady has a message for Gernot Rohr.

To call or not to call again? The Eagles will play again next Friday.
