Quintessential ,the dignified word that the revered oxford dictionary labeled as" Something representing the most perfect or typical example of a quality or class." is no doubt the apt word that can be used to paint Distinguish Senate President Dr Bukola Saraki Last Saturday When He Stepped Out As Chief Guest Of Honor In The Explosive World Cup Qualifier Between Nigeria Against Algeria At The Goodwill Akpabio Stadium Uyo 

On A Sunny Day Other Politicians Could Have Come Out Dressing in drably 3 piece traditional agbada, or some safari suits, quintessential Saraki came to greet the players with a sharp sporty looking sky blue top, jeans \cap and a sleek green white green emblem by his shoulder

He Turned Out To Be Envy Of All And Even Before the match he had spoken to the team and advised them not to forget that millions of Nigerians Are Looking Up to Them Since Football Is The Greatest Unifying Factor The Magic Worked, Eagles Went On To Triumph In An Emphatic Manner To This, We Commend The Distinguish Senate President And Hope His Charm And Charisma Will Bring More Luck To Our Sporting Circle.




The Uyo match may be case study and what a match, as Victor Moses opened the scoring with a solo goal from the left then Mikel Obi added a second from a one on one position after initially thinking he was in an offside position. In the second half, Nabil Bentaleb scored a cracker from almost 35 yards after Riyad Mahrez had drawn Oghenekaro Etebo and Ogenyi Onazi out of position with some piece of trickery. Victor Moses however scored his second and Nigeria’s third when he found himself free on the left to slot into the net.
