“Winning the 2015 Afcon has united Ivorians more and we feel it would be a great opportunity to consolidate that joy and unity of February 8 by taking the trophy to even the farthest part of the country for locals to see,” Fif vice president Sory Diabate told supersport.com on Tuesday.

“We have already presented the trophy to several personalities in top offices and political party chiefs. And each time we realised everybody is happy and satisfied. That is our aim.

“Ivory Coast has known too much suffering and division. We don’t want this to continue. We are confident that the joy from our victory in Equatorial Guinea will remain in the hearts of Ivorians for long,” he said.
