Buhari hails Anthony Joshua on regaining world crown
President Muhammadu Buhari has thumbed up World Heavyweight Boxing Champion, Anthony Joshua, for regaining his belts Saturday night in a rematch with Mexican, Andy Ruiz Jnr.
A statement issued in Abuja on Sunday by Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President (Media and Publicity) said the President rejoiced with 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 the comeback world champion.
He wished Joshua well as he seeks to bring more glory to Nigeria, and to the boxing profession.
