Nigeria president-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has praised Victor Osimhen after the Nigerian hotshot guided SSC Napoli to their first Serie A title in 33 years.

The quick forward has scored the most goals (23) in the Italian top flight in the current season having established himself as one of the best strikers in the world.

According to Tinubu, Victor is the real deal or ‘Idan gangan’, a term popular among young Nigerians to describe a ‘great person’.

“I think we can all agree that there was another coronation in Italy where our son, Victor Osimhen, claimed the crown as the new King of Serie A!,” Tibubu wrote on his official Twitter page.

“The real deal, or idán gangan as younger folks may describe him; Victor has continued the fine tradition of Nigeria’s footballing excellence on the global stage. We are all proud of him and wish him well in what is already a remarkable career.”

On 1 March 2023, Tinubu was declared the winner of the 2023 Nigerian presidential election and he supports English giants Manchester United.
