Fast for Super Eagles- David Mark appealed to Senators

The Senate President, David Mark, on Thursday in Abuja appealed to senators to fast for the Super Eagles, if it would ensure their victory over the Elephants of Cote d’Ivoire.

The national team will file out against their Cote d’Ivoire counterparts in Sunday’s quarter-final match of the ongoing 29th Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.

“Individually, you can fast if you think it will make them to win,’’ the News Agency of Nigeria quoted Mark as saying to the senators on Thursday.

According to him, national pride is at stake and therefore, the Super Eagles must play their best to ensure victory.

He told the Deputy Leader of the Senate who, he said, was the contact person between the Senate and the Super Eagles, to inform them that the prayers of all Nigerians were with them.

“We will pray as hard as we can but they must play as hard as they can because our prayers alone cannot score goals,’’ Mark said.
