The president of the Confederation of African Football Federations, CAF, Patrice Motsepe, has revealed that Nigeria’s President Bola Ahmed Tinubu will be attending the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations final.
Nigeria and hosts Cote d’Ivoire will clash in the final of the competition at the Alassanne Ouattara Stadium, Ebimpe, Abidjan, on Sunday.
During his press conference on Friday at the Palace de la Culture in Trechville, Abidjan, Motsepe was asked when Africa could host the World Cup again.
The South African business mogul replied: “Nigeria must put in a bid. The Nigerian president (Bola Tinubu) is coming to watch the final on Sunday. I will have a conversation with him about it.”
Nigeria’s Vice President Kashim Shettima was in attendance when the Super Eagles defeated South Africa 4-2 on penalties in the semi-finals on Wednesday.
The encounter will kick off at 9 pm Nigerian time.
