John Mahama Congratulates Senegal On 2021 AFCON Victory
Former President John Mahama has congratulated Sadio Mane’s Senegal for emerging champions of the 2021 Total Energies Africa Cup of Nations held in Cameroon.
Senegal on Sunday, February 6, beat Egypt to win their first AFCON title. The Teranga Lions saw victory after Mane scored the winning goal during the penalty shootouts.
Following this feat, Mr Mahama took to social media platform Facebook to celebrate with the Senegalese team.
In a Facebook post, the former President noted that Senegal has persevered all these years and must therefore “enjoy this moment.”
“Senegal made it!! Congratulations. Your wait has been very long but it’s finally here.”
Also, Member of Parliament for North Tongu constituency, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, in a tweet, noted that Senegal worked so hard to emerge as “the better team” at the end of the tournament.
He, however, commended Egypt goalkeeper, Gabaski for his tremendous effort in the finale. Gabaski in the 7th minute of the match prevented Senegal from securing its goal after receiving a penalty when Saliou Cisse was brought down in the box by Mohamed Abdelmonem.
Prior to the game, Mr Ablakwa made known his support for Senegal. He opposed Egypt’s victory so as to ‘prevent’ the team from winning its 8th trophy.
He wants Ghana Black Stars to have a chance at catching up with the Pharaohs.
The better team won!
Gabaski did his best. https://t.co/JemfUYxhIP
