Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of Labour Party in the 2023 presidential election has congratulated Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen for winning the Italian League.
Osimhen made headlines yesterday after handing his club victory over Fiorentina.
He also became the first African to score the highest number of goals in the Italian league.
Congratulating him, Obi wrote:
“I heartily congratulate the Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen, whose 22nd goal of the season earned Napoli a 1-1 draw at Udinese and was enough to win the great Italian Football Club their first Serie A league title since 1990.
Today, Victor Osimhen’s penalty against Fiorentina further pushed him ahead of George Weah as the Africa’s highest goal scorer in Seria A history.
Osimhen’s feat is more remarkable when it is recalled that Napoli last won the title during the days of the late legendary footballer Diego Maradona.
Osimhen’s inspiring story of rising from the slums of Ojota Lagos to become one of the best footballers in the world is an eloquent testimony to what Nigerian youths can achieve if given the right atmosphere to pursue their dreams.
It is yet another proof that a new Nigeria is POssible if we harness the abundant talents of our teeming youths. -PO”
