Reno Omokri, a media aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, said he fears lots of babies may be conceived today due to the performance of the Super Eagles of Nigeria against Egypt.
The Super Eagles defeated a Mohammed Salah-led Egypt team in their opening group game of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) played on Tuesday.
Kelechi Iheanacho, Moses Simon shined all through their time on the pitch while Salah struggled for over 90 minutes.
Reacting to the victory, Omokri said “The mood in Nigeria is good.”
Omokri added that “Nigerians really needed this bit of good news after a week of the calamity in other spheres of our national life!”
He said: “I like what our boys did to Salah. He was off his game because our boys were on top of theirs. To me, this is the best performance of #AFCON2021 so far. Iheanacho was obviously the Man of the Match, though Moses was the life of the team. This is the first time Egypt lost a first-round in an AFCON in a long time! The mood in Nigeria is good. So good, that I fear lots of babies may be conceived today. We really needed this bit of good news after a week of calamity in other spheres of our national life! Apparently, Moses is still a problem to the Egyptians as he was 4500 years ago. One Moses was used by God to part the Red Sea and swallow the Egyptians. Another one was used to part the goal post and bury the Egyptians. Either way, we are most grateful to God!”
