Senate President Bukola Saraki has urged the Super Eagles to build on the successes of their victory over Libya in a 2019 African Cup of Nations qualifier.
Nigeria had beaten the Libyans 4-0 on Saturday before a nervy 2-3 win over the North Africans in the reverse fixture on Tuesday.
With the win putting Gernot Rohr’s side top of the Group E standings with nine points from four games, Saraki has hailed the team for the feat.
In a tweet, the former Kwara State Governor said: “Congratulations to our dear @NGSuperEagles. We are top of the table in Group E!
“Let’s build on the successes of the last two games in our remaining matches as we work to clinch that ticket to #AFCON2019.”
Congratulations to our dear @NGSuperEagles. We are top of the table in Group E!
