Adesina explained that through all its failures and setbacks, the club tightly held on to the undying hope of rising to the top of the league, a notion which at the moment is no longer mere wishful thinking.

In his comparison, he asserted that Nigeria is sure to rise from its current travails under the President Buhari-led administration.

His words:

"Who says Nigeria will not rise from its current travails? Who says Aiye will always win? Not where God is involved. And God is involved with Nigeria, our own dear native land. Under President Buhari, peace and security would be restored.
"Man City bounced back from the ashes to emerge victors. It has won the Carabao Cup this season, and may win the Champions League on May 29, if her luck holds. Liverpool would be back someday soon. Just as Nigeria would confound the enemies, and it would happen under Buhari’s leadership. The Good Book has said it, in Micah 7:8: “Rejoice not against me, O my enemy: when I fall, I shall rise again.”
