The Super Eagles had not won the Africa Cup of Nations in over 19 years, but that drought ended after midfielder Sunday Mba scored the only goal of the game to lead his side to only their third triumph in the tournament.
Moses was one of the players who starred for Nigeria in their successful campaign; the Chelsea player was a constant threat to the Burkina Faso defence and it was from his blocked shot which led to Mba's winning goal.
And the 22-year-old could hardly contain his pride at having managed to contribute to the Super Eagles' victory.
"[It's] one of [the] best days of my life this is a dream come true I'm so proud to be Nigerian," Moses was quoted as saying by ESPN.
"The win is for each and every one of [you] back home."
Despite the win, Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi, who also won the tournament as a player in 1994, claimed that his side were still a work in progress but acknowledged they were on track to becoming one of the best teams in international football.
"We're not there yet," Keshi declared.
"My plan was to build a good team for Nigeria when I came on board almost a year-and-a-half ago.
"Now we are on the path to building a great side."
With the win, Keshi became the first Nigerian coach to have led the country to success in the tournament.
