I want to extend my heartfelt congratulations to Super eagles for there outstanding victory against Ivory Coast it’s imperative for me to address the message I have received from fellow Nigerians, accusing me of pretending to be injured to départ the national team just before the afcon and return to my club clarifying the situation and providing a detailed account of event is essential .
I want to express my deep love for Africa and my unwearing affection for Nigeria. Presenting our great nation is constantly both a privilege an and honour. Here is a comprehensive explanation on the situation . during the friendly game against guinea .I experienced a significant impact from two guinea defenders.leading to a penalty is a favour for Nigeria. Despite the medical team recommending substitution for preventive measures I insisted on continue to play and complete the game. The following day. My knee swelled the super eagles medical team conducted a thorough examination. Revealing a meniscus injury consequently. The manager decided to replace me base on the medical assessment , considering uncertainties about my fitness for the afcon
Upon returning to my club undergoing thorough examination .the medical team revealed that I had only suffered a bruise and as a result I was clear to resume training
I give special thanks Allah and my club .Real Sociedad. For supporting my swift recovery and resume to play
Representing Nigeria is always my priority .I will never take it a granted .I would gladly accept it if I could return to the team. I am sad that am not with the team but happy for the winning .I extend my best wishes to the super eagles in the ongoing African Nations Cup.
