Organizers of the ‘Let’s Do It Again’ campaign that mobilized and galvanized Nigerians from all walks of life to support the Super Eagles’ participation at the 34th Africa Cup of Nations in Cote d’Ivoire have commended the team’s efforts that resulted in a second-place finish, and also heaped praises on Nigerians who gave the campaign their time, sweat, gravitas, energy and resources.


Toyosi Oyetunji, Senior Partner of Sportdom Limited, said the campaign is a call to make Nigerians believe in the Super Eagles (and other national teams) again. “Our objective is to revive the nostalgic enthusiasm for Nigeria football, engaging both the young and the old, with a particular focus on the Gen Z demographic. To amplify this message, we engaged many celebrities and influencers to galvanize support and convey that every Nigerian is an integral part of the Super Eagles’ journey.


“Big kudos to the Super Eagles for their silver medal-winning effort, which is commendable as 24 teams started the race. Big kudos to all Nigerians, including the Minister of Sports and the chieftains of Nigeria Football Federation, who believed in the campaign and gave it oxygen and drive.”   


On his part, project coordinator Abubakar Umar Danladi said: “The Super Eagles did a marvelous job wading through the group phase, conquering subsequent challenges and getting to the Final. In the Final match, we were up against so many odds, hurdles, and obstacles as we faced the host nation. More than 80,000 spectators were in that arena, and it would have been a daunting task for any team. We praise the Eagles for their second-place finish, and their efforts indeed were not in vain as Nigeria produced the Player of the Tournament in William Ekong. We also had three players in the competition’s Best Eleven, which was no mean feat.


“Like Mr. President said while receiving the team in Abuja on Tuesday, their dedication to the cause united us all in pride and solidarity and was another pointer: our strength and ability to conquer our diversity.


“Our deep appreciation also goes to Nigerians at home and abroad, male and female, young and not-so-young, Gen Z and older Gens, who invested time, effort, sweat, and resources to support the campaign. We believe that we have jointly created a new love and passion for our team, and in the future, it will be much easier to galvanize our people to support the team’s cause at any time.


Danladi expressed immense gratitude to the Honourable Minister of Sports, Senator John Owan Enoh; the President of NFF, Alhaji Ibrahim Musa Gusau; General Secretary of NFF, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi; the NFF Board and Management; Muri Tafida, the Chairman of Bergen Horn Limited, for their tremendous support for the campaign. “The 34th Africa Cup of Nations is now in the past. We look forward to the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers and the 35th Africa Cup of Nations finals in Morocco next year.”
