Vice President Kashim Shettima celebrated with the Super Eagles following their victory over South Africa’s Bafana Bafana in the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2023 semi-final in Cote d’Ivoire.
The match ended 1-1 after extra time, and the three-time champions will face either hosts Ivory Coast or the Democratic Republic of Congo in Sunday’s final.
Both regular-time goals also came from penalties with captain William Troost-Ekong scoring after 67 minutes for Nigeria and Teboho Mokoena equalised from a 90th-minute spot-kick.
Before the commencement of the match, the vice president was sent by President Bola Tinubu to boost the morale of the players.
After Nigeria’s victory, an elated Vice President visited the Super Eagles in the dressing room.
