@Austin Oshie said, “Bcos he’s insisting on what’s African interest, that AFCON must proceed as scheduled. Oyibo people have a lot of mental health issues oo.”

@Solomon de King said, “The Europeans always have a way of pulling you down when you say the truth. They should learn to respect us and our opinions. The Afcon must go on!”

@Paul Adeliyi said, “It is past due for footballers to know the importance of hiring a personal finance advisor who should manage such mess like this for them ahead of scandals.

“Footballers waste a lot of money on frivolities which adds no value to them other than show-off.

“Eto’o should be made to pay if actually he is owing. After all, it is other people’s taxes that created the enabling environment for him to achieve his dreams.”
