Sports Minister, Dare Says President Buhari Is Likely To Watch Nigeria Vs Ghana Second Leg Live
President Muhammadu Buhari may watch the Super Eagles’ return leg of the 2022 World Cup qualifying playoffs against Ghana at the MKO Abiola stadium in Abuja as inspiration for the Super Eagles.
This was disclosed by Sunday Dare, Nigeria’s Minister of Youth and Sport.
Dare told NFF TV on March 23 that while the president’s attendance in the second leg is not guaranteed, he will most likely be there.
“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.”
“We are lucky on two counts, the stars we have on the pitch they are very good boys and we are also lucky with the crew because of the experience you people have collectively on and off the field. We are not going to play a draw in Ghana, these guys should just go out because there’s insurance for their legs now.
“So I wish you the best, all I can do is pray and support you I had to give you a good pitch here I’m glad they (players) liked it.”
He told the players;
“Thank you sincerely for turning up for Nigeria. We have put Cameroon and the Cup of Nations behind us and the message after Cameroon is that if I could remember I said let us visit our anger on Ghana. We are not going to Ghana for a draw so you guys just do your thing it’s football.”
