APC Secretary to Benin Republic, Alhaji Lawal Usman has frowned at the antics of the hosts towards Nigeria ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier.
The Super Eagles will face the Squirrels in a crucial AFCON qualifier at the Stade Charles De Gaulle on Saturday. Kickoff is 5pm.
But the antics of the hosts wasn’t well taken by Nigerians, a situation Alhaji Usman condemned.
“As a matter of fact, we were here this morning (Friday) with the convoy of Ambassador of Nigeria to Benin Republic,” he said.
Many are not sure of the current state of Stade Charles De Gaulle pitch and the astute Politician gave an update.
“We weren’t allowed to see the condition of the Pitch, so I wouldn’t know if the turf is in good condition. It depends on the outcome of the Eagles’ training if they will be able to tell us the actual condition of the pitch.”
Nigerian media were also barred from the Super Eagles train on Friday night.
“I am surprised that they didn’t allow Nigerian Journalists to see the training session of Super Eagles,” he mused.
“Probably because they are scared of Nigeria, which explains why Press Men were barred from writing one or two things about the Super Eagles.
“We should win 2-0 on Saturday. With the calibre of players I met on arrival, Nigeria should actually win,” the APC Scribe added.
