However, it is his call-up to the Super Eagles squad that truly solidifies his status as one of Nigeria's brightest prospects.

Joining the ranks of seasoned veterans and established stars, Tanimu now has the opportunity to prove his worth on a national level.

His inclusion in the squad speaks volumes about his talent and potential however, he is no stranger to international football as he is a youth international for Nigeria at U23 level.

For Tanimu, donning the green and white jersey of the Super Eagles is not just a dream come true but a testament to his dedication and hard work.

It is a momentous occasion that validates years of sacrifice and commitment to his craft.

As he prepares to step onto the pitch alongside his new esteemed teammates, Tanimu carries with him the hopes and aspirations of a nation, eager to witness the emergence of a new star.
