Former Senator representing one of the three senatorial districts in Bayelsa State, Ben Murray Bruce, has ignited online controversy by suggesting that Minister of Information Idris’ tweet encouraging the Super Eagles is the reason behind their victory.
Recall that on Friday, the Super Eagles, with the help of Ademola Lookman’s goal, defeated Angola to advance to the Semi-Finals at the AFCON.
Nigerians interested in politics attributed their success to different political figures; some claimed it was Peter Obi’s presence, while others credited President Tinubu’s words of encouragement.
The CEO of Silverbird expressed his thoughts via his X handle, stating: “Lookman scored at the exact moment the Minister of Information, @HMMohammedIdris, tweeted the Federal Government’s support. I mean the very second the Minister posted.
What a magnificent coincidence!.
