Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari is excited over the decision of Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen to join Serie A giants, Napoli.
The country’s Deputy Ambassador to Italy, Franklin Ogunyemi, made the president’s position known during a talk on Radio Kiss Kiss, a Naples based radio station. He added that the entire diplomatic staff in the country are delighted with the move by the 21-year-old forward.
“The entire Nigerian diplomatic mission, headed by Ambassador Yusuf Jonga Hinna, is very happy with Victor Osimhen’s transfer to Naples.
“We know that the head of state of our country, Muhammadu Buhari, is also happy with this transfer. Osimhen is a young but already very strong footballer,” the diplomat said.
Osimhen scored 18 goals in his first season with Lille, attracting interest from top clubs in the English Premier League, Spanish LaLiga, and other top-flight leagues.
