The Honourable Minister of Sports Development, Senator John Owan Enoh recently had a discussion with Super Eagles midfielder, Alex Iwobi following cyber bullies against the Fulham star.

This was disclosed in a statement signed by Enoh’s media aide, Diana-Mary Tiku Nsan on Monday.

Enoh, who led the Super Eagles of Nigeria back home after the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations final against Ivory Coast, told Iwobi that he is aware of different negative words threw at him on social media and his ministry will not advocate bullying.

The final AFCON 2023 has seen Iwobi experience a routine of unpleasant remarks hurled at him.

Enoh, however, encouraged the former Arsenal star saying:

“You did your best for your country and I am proud of you. The leadership and the rest of the country is proud of you.’

“Those who are not are in the far minority and do not speak for the rest of our country, so just be strong.’

“You did your best, you are part of a team that brought home a silver medal which the country last won at AFCON 2000, which is 23 years ago. You put in your best, thank you very much.”

However, Iwobi confirmed leaving social media after the final game.
