Speaking in Uyo on Tuesday, the Permanent Secretary in the Akwa Ibom State Ministry of Youth and Sports, Mr. Nse Edem, stated: “Given the importance of the match and the high expectation of Nigerians, the match tickets are certainly worth more than what they are being offered.

“However, His Excellency, the Executive Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Mr. Udom Emmanuel, has charged the Organizing Committee headed by the Secretary to the State Government, Sir Etekamba Umoren, to make the tickets affordable so that we can have a full house to cheer the Super Eagles on the day.”

Edem, who is also Chairman of the Media and Publicity Committee for the game, assured that the Akwa Ibom State Government, working in harmony with the Nigeria Football Federation, will deliver a hitch-free game on Saturday.
