In a bid to ensure Nigeria comes on top in the 2022 world cup playoffs Ghana, the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria is partnering with Authentic Nigeria Football and Allied Supporters Club to mobilize at least 5,000 Nigerians to cheer eagles against black stars of Ghana.

 

The two bodies are working together to ensure that at least 5000 supporters are airlifted to Ghana for the first leg of the Qatar 2022 World Cup playoffs to support the Eagles.

Speaking at the press conference on Wednesday in Abuja the president of Authentic supporter’s club Abayomi Ogunjimi said the club will leave no stone unturned to ensure super eagles came out victoriously in the forthcoming World cup playoff against Ghana. 

He urged Nigerians to put behind them the pains of Afcon behind and moved forward to ensure Super Eagles qualify. 

According to him, the aim of the conference is for us to mobilize 5,000 Nigerians here in Nigeria and in Ghana for us to be in Qatar. 

“Football is one language, let us use the tool of football to unite Nigeria the more. Let face playoff squarely, that is why we are partnering with SWAN.”

He sought the support of every Nigerian to ensure eagles’ qualifiers. 

Just a few weeks ago, the Authentic supporters club mobilise over 500 Nigerians that cheer eagles in Cameroon. 

On his own, the FCT SWAN Chairman Comrade Bunmi Haruna commended the authentic supporter’s clubs for the good job it’s doing for the national team. 

He said: “This is a very significant event looking at what is steering at us in the eye. For the first very time, we saw how Nigerian were happy until the last game they were booted out. 

” We need to get behind us what happened at AFCON and face the battle ahead which Qatar. 

” We must not leave the bulk of work in the hand of NFF. 

“As a coach, I know the role the 12 men play which is supporter club play that why we need to come together and support Eagles, for them to qualify for the world cup. 

“The target is to take 5,000 Nigeria to Ghana to cheer eagles. We want to turn Ghana to Nigeria but we cannot do it without the support of all Nigerians, because NFF and sports Ministry can’t do it alone.”
