President Buhari & Football are Soul-Mates

President Buhari of Nigeria & football  are inseparable. In the year 1985 the Golden Eaglet of Nigeria won the maiden edition of the under-17 world cup in China with General Buhari as the Head of state back then.

And three decades later in 2015, history repeated itself in President Buhari first year in power as a democratically elected President, as the Golden Eaglet of Nigeria again won the FIFA under-17 world cup for a record fifth time. 

Speaking after receiving the 2015 Glo/CAF Platinum award for good leadership which was bestowed on in recognition of his support for football which resulted in Nigeria winning two major football events in 2015. The President declared " I think football loves me"
