President Goodluck Jonathan during his visit to the National stadium in Abuja on Wednesday urged the Super Eagles to work towards success in their game in Moronvia on Saturday.
The National Team are billed to play against the Leone Stars of Liberia in a qualifying match for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa. They are currently undergoing training at the National Stadium in Abuja.
Jonathan encouraged the players to work hard to ensure they do well in the match and disclosed that he had already set up a special committee at the Federal Executive Council meeting earlier in the day to look at how the lost glory of the nation’s sports could be restored.
While calling for a re-enactment of the Atlanta 1996 Olympic Games where Nigeria won the football event, Jonathan said he believed that Nigeria could still win gold in that category and others at subsequent Olympics.
The President expressed his displeasure over the poor state of the stadium which was overgrown with weeds at the time of his visit. He therefore ordered the management of the stadium to correct the anomaly immediately.
