Barring any last minutes hitches, President Muhammadu Buhari will watch the returned leg of the 2022 World Cup play off between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and the Black stars of Ghana at the Mashood Abiola Stadium, Abuja on Tuesday, 29th of March 2022.
This was disclosed by the Minister for Youths and Sports, Sunday Dare during a press talk ahead of the qualifying matches.
The minister said President Buhari's presence at the stadium will be form of motivation for the Super Eagles.
The minister who made the disclosure while speaking to NFF TV on Wednesday March 23, said it is not 100 per cent guaranteed that the president will attend the second leg, but he is likely going to be present.
“I was in Lagos yesterday (Tuesday) and the president (Muhammadu Buhari) ask me why was I not in Ghana and I realised that the president also knows that there is a Ghana match.
“He has not given me 100 per cent assurance but he is likely going to show up here (second leg) on the 29th as a surprise.”
“We know the antics of Ghana, I’ve gone to school because of the match in Ghana and when I say I’ve gone to school, I’ve researched Ghana, I’ve researched Kumasi, I’ve researched the games they’ve won, I’ve researched some of their players, every single scouting report has come to me.”
it would be noted that many Nigerians believed that it was because of the call put across to the president that made the Super Eagle to crash out early in the last AFCON.
