The Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Udom Emmanuel, has pledged a sum of $10,000 to the Super Eagles for every goal they score against Cameroon.
On Friday evening, Nigeria will take on the Indomitable Lions, as they continue their quest to be at next year’s World Cup in Russia.
The game will be played in the Akwa Ibom state capital, Uyo, at the magnificant Godswill Akpabio International Stadium.
“We are here because there is nothing as good as appreciating people, especially when the people are working for the general good. A love not expressed is a love wasted and so we are here to tell you that we appreciate what you are doing for Nigeria.
“I also want to tell you that no matter how wild a cat is, there is a place you will hold it and it will not be able to harm you. Go there and win the game for us,” Udom told the players.
Governor Udom has also redeemed the $30,000 he promised the team, for the three goals they scored against Algeria in their first 2018 World Cup qualifier.
