Shehu Sani, a former Kaduna Central Senator, on Monday said only God would have saved President Bola Tinubu if he had attended the final Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, in Cote d’Ivoire.
Sani said Nigerians would have stepped on Tinubu if he had attended the final match.
Posting on X, Sani wrote: “If the President has attended that Match,na only God go save am from una koboko.”
The Super Eagles of Nigeria had lost 2-1 to the Elephants of Cote d’Ivoire on Sunday.
Ivory Coast came from behind to beat Nigeria 2-1 with Sebastian Haller scoring the winning goal after Franck Kessie canceled out William Troost-Ekong’s first-half header.
However, some Nigerians had taken to their X handles to blame Tinubu for the Eagles’ defeat.
@joseph_ebuka3: “So Na tinubu make us lose that match.”
@kobokolaugh: “Tinubu we’re not happy for Nigeria ooo, Na Super Eagles we Dey happy for ooo”
@This_isBravado: “Na Tinubu cause this defeat. Ghanaians please take Tinubu give us Shata bandle.”
