President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan visited the super eagles in their National Stadium Abuja camp on Wednesday 5th of September 2012. He urged them to do the nation proud by coming out victorious in their match against the Leone Stars of Liberia in Monrovia on Saturday.
During his visit, President Goodluck disclosed that he has set up a special committee at the Federal Executive Council meeting held earlier in the day to find a solution to restoring the lost glory of the nation’s sports. Jonathan said that he believe that the Eagles can still re-enact the Atlanta 1996 Olympic form that gave them the gold medal in football.
The Nigerian National Team, the Super Eagles will be playing against their Liberian counterparts The Leone Stars in a qualifying match for the 2013 African Cup of Nations holding in South Africa.
President Goodluck could not hide his displeasure over the poor state of the stadium that has been over grown with weeds, as he ordered the stadium management to take care of the anomaly with immediate effect.
