Before he departed Abuja, Lawan who was leading the presidential delegation to the venue of the match said that the presence of the delegation would boost the morale of the team and would stimulate them to win the match which is scheduled to kick off at 8 pm Nigerian time.

“I am confident that our boys will today reenact their winning streak in their determination to win the trophy, and they need all of our supporters including our physical presence,” he said.

The delegation that went to Egypt included the Speaker of the House, Hon. Fem Gbajabiamila, and the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha.
