They deserve our sympathy – Peter Obi after visiting injured ex-Super Eagles star Babangida

Labour Party’s 2023 presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has paid a sympathy visit to Tijani Babangida, the former Super Eagles winger who was recently involved in a motor accident last month.

Babangida was among the Dream Team that won gold at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, USA.

Babangida, now 50, played for Ajax during his playing days. He lost his younger brother, Ibrahim, to the accident and broke his right leg in the process, while his wife was also seriously injured.

Speaking to reporters, Obi said, “they made us happy with their talents, and in times like this, they deserve our sympathy and attention.”

The former Nigeria international, who is still nursing the injured leg, told Obi he lost his brother and his son, while his wife is still seriously in pain from the ugly accident.

Babangida, who is the President of the Professional Footballers Association of Nigeria, told Obi how help has been coming to him from his former colleagues and club in Holland, Ajax.
