President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated World Heavyweight Boxing Champion, Anthony Olufemi Joshua, for regaining his championship belts on Saturday night in a rematch with Mexican, Andy Ruiz Jnr.
The President rejoiced with the Nigerian-born British Joshua, saluting him for bringing joy to millions of Nigerians at home and in the Diaspora, who had rooted for him to regain the titles he lost about six months ago.
“The downfall of a man is truly not the end of his life. There’s always another, and better day. This is a lesson we must all learn from you as a country,” Buhari told Joshua via a presidency statement issued on Sunday morning.
The President wished Anthony Joshua well as he seeks to bring more glory to Nigeria, and to the boxing profession.
