Super eaglesNewly appointed Kenyan High Commissioner to Nigeria, Thomas Amolo, yesterday, revealed that Kenya was the greatest supporter of Nigeria during the just concluded African Cup of Nations, AFCON 2013 in South Africa.
Speaking during the official opening of the Kenyan Tourist Board/Kenyan Airways road show held in Abuja yesterday, Amolo who arrived Nigeria two weeks ago, described Nigeria as a wonderful country, saying he has a personal taste and love for Nigeria.

Displaying a traditional Nigerian outfit which he got five years ago, Amolo urged Kenyan nationals to embrace Nigeria as their own, even as he called on Nigerians to embrace Kenya as their own.

“We are national partners, we have to work together in all fields. When the Super Eagles were playing in Durban, I was there. And I can tell you: I was one of the Kenyan contingent to AFCON in Johannesburg. We were shouting the loudest when the Super Eagles were playing and scoring.

“I can tell you from what I saw that the other side was supporting Burkina Faso. I will not say who the other side was,” he stated.”
