Nigeria Vs Zambia: Fashola to Represent Buhari

spokesman, saying it learnt on Friday morning that Fashola would fly into Akwa Ibom on Saturday.
He noted that Fashola, a former governor of Lagos State, frequently hosted the grand finale of the Federation Cup (now AITEO Cup) competition and was a notable football enthusiast.
“The Chairmen of the Senate and House of Representatives Committees on Sports, Sen. Obinna Ogba and Rep. Goni Bukar Lawan will also be guests at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium.

Nigeria is three points ahead of second-placed Zambia going into the penultimate day of the African qualifiers.
The Super Eagles require only the minimum win against the Chipolopolo on Saturday to join 10 other nations that have already qualified for the 32-team football showpiece in Russia in 2018.
