AFCON final: Save your husbands from death – Shehu Sani to Nigerian women

0 102

Shehu Sani, a former federal lawmaker, has advised Nigerian women not to let their husbands pass away over football.

The former lawmaker, who served in the Eighth Assembly, asserted that wives have a responsibility to keep their husbands alive.

At least five Nigerians were reportedly killed on Wednesday night while watching the Super Eagles of Nigeria play Bafana Bafana of South Africa in the semi-final of the ongoing African Cup of Nations, or AFCON, in Cote D’Ivoire.

Even though the Super Eagles defeated the Bafana in penalty shootouts, there was a lot of tension in that game.

Ayuba Abdullahi, Mikail Osundiji of the Olomoore area of Abeokuta, Ogun State, Deputy Bursar at Kwara State University, Malete, Dr. Cairo Ojougboh, a corps member serving in Adamawa State, and other prominent members of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, are among the reported casualties who passed away while watching the match.

When the women were unsure of their husbands’ health, Sani advised them to go so far as to sabotage the generator set and turn off the power meter.

The lawmaker tweeted on Friday, saying, “If your husband loves watching football on live TV and you are doubtful about his health status, just turn off the power meter and switch off and don’t forget to sabotage the generator.”

Since then, the Super Eagles have contacted the families of those who passed away during the game to offer their condolences. The group prayed for the victims’ souls to find eternal rest and observed a minute of silence in their honor.

When the team plays the Elephants of Cote D’Ivoire in the tournament final on Sunday, Nigerians will be hoping that similar tragedies do not happen again.
