“Dear General Buhari,”
“The only appeal I make to you as Nigeria is set to face Ghana in a World Cup qualifier is please do NOT call the Super Eagles.
“Whether video or audio call, please, please, and please, do NOT call. If you want to call, I can get you the number of the Black Stars of Ghana.
“In the spirit of West African brotherhood, you may wish to call them to ‘inspire them’.”
