The Elephants of Ivory Coast defeated the Super Eagles of Nigeria 2-1 to claim their third title.

Beida was caught in the midst of some poor decisions against Nigeria during the encounter, which many said resulted in the Eagles’ loss at the tournament.

The Punch reported on Monday, February 12, that the Mauritanian official, in front of over 60,000 fans, mostly Ivorians, called for a number of fouls in favour of the host country but failed to reciprocate in obvious situations for the Eagles.

Meanwhile, the referee reportedly made controversial calls, which kept Eagles’ coach Jose Peseiro agitated in most parts of the game. In fact, the referee gave him a yellow card to put the Portuguese tactician in check.

Reacting, the Super Eagles midfielder Wilfred Ndidi, who missed the tournament due to an injury, wrote in pidgin English:

“Ref na wa o.”

Journalists also joined in the criticism, as some maintained that the referee clearly struggled with the occasion.

“Puzzling choice of referee for the final. Favour probably prevailed over labour,” Journalist Biola Kazeem noted.

Also, a UK-based Nigerian educationist, Dipo Awojide, decried the poor officiating. He noted:

“The referee has been awful. He cheated!”

Popular Nigerian RnB singer Johnny Drille also commented on the referee’s performance, noting it was obvious that he officiated in favour of the hosts.

He said:
