How Nigerian Politicians React To Arsenal Win Over Everton

Nigerian politicians are definitely not just interested in politicking and public issues but they are also interested in football.

While many expected Politicians to occupy themselves with issues bothering on saddled responsibilities, insecurity, unemployment, economy issues and more, notable Nigerian politicians are seen on twitter showing love for their dear clubs.

It was the English Premier league match between Arsenal and Everton at the Emirate stadium. In the five goal thriller match between the two English premier league club, Saka and Nketiah equal eighty year record.

CitySports come across two of Nigerians eminent Politicians, who could not hide their feelings for their European football club.

First is the presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic party, PDP in the 2019 general election.

Alh. Abubakar Atiku appreciated an arsenal player, Eddie Nketiah for his stunning goal against Everton on Sunday.

Apparently Atiku is not just politician but a football lover and an Arsenal fan. Although, one would ask, if the former Vice President has any interest in the Nigeria local league and its development.

Praising the prowess of the Ghanaian young lad, Atiku took to his twitter handle to applaud the goal scored by Eddie Nketiah. Atiku writes: “Fantabulous goal, Nketiah. You’re doing well.

The second politicians whom CitySports spotted is Alhaji Rauf Aregbesola who is also an Arsenal Fan.

In his reaction to Arsenal’s victor on Sunday, Aregbesola simple tweeted: “Three Massive point today”.
