Nigeria Thirsty To Win 2023 AFCON, Minister Charges NFF, Peseiro

The Minister of Sports Development, Sen. John Owan Enoh, has chided the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and Super Eagles gaffer, Jose Peseiro, to ensure a good outing for the Super Eagles at the 2023 AFCON.

The 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) will take place from January 13 to February 11, 2024, in Côte d’Ivoire.

The minister stated this on Wednesday in Abuja at a meeting with the NFF and Peseiro to deliberate on strategic plans and preparations for the success of the 2023 AFCON.

He said:

“Our country is so passionate about football, such that amidst all other sports, football is the only sport that has an entry in the nation’s national budget.

“That is how important football is, because whatever happens to it happens to us as a country.

“After 10 years, the country is thirsty to win the AFCON. It will matter a great deal to the Nigerian people and to the government of President Bola Tinubu.

“It is important to not just leave the task to the NFF alone, but the government is also interested in being able to tell the Nigerian people what is being done in that regard.”
