Rev. Fr. Kelvin Ugwu, a Nigerian Catholic priest based in Malawi, on Tuesday appealed to the country’s football team to switch off their phones ahead of their match with Morocco in the round of 16 of the Africa Cup of Nations on January 25.

Ugwu took to his Facebook page to make the appeal, saying that Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari might surprise the Malawians with a phone call as he is known for ‘chasing after rats while his house is on fire’ .

He said; “Because Buhari can just surprise anyone and even go to the extent of chasing after rats while his house is on fire, that is why I am making this passionate appeal.

We remembered one certain time where he ran to Mali to settle two people fighting with sticks while his house was exploding with bombs.

“Please and please, Malawi is playing Morocco today, help me pass this message to the players and coach. . . Malawi team should switch off their phones now or ignore any call that they are not sure of. E get why.”
