I am particularly delighted by the outcome of the football match early this morning in which our football team defeated their Japanese counterparts.“The sweetness of the victory comes from the fact that it came against all odds. Our team overcame several challenges to put up a sterling performance. This is a good beginning.”Buhari also praised the resilience, hardwork and patriotism that the athletes have put into their preparations;“I am already aware that you have made personal sacrifices in your journey to the Olympic Games. The motivation comes from strong discipline and the love of the nation.”“As you embark on the search for honours for the nation, I seize this opportunity to assure our Olympians that you have my support and those of all Nigerians.“Go!
