The Office of the Federation’s Head of Service has ordered that all offices close at 1 p.m. on Tuesday so that public personnel can cheer on Augustine Eguavoen’s team at the Moshood Abiola Stadium.

This comes on top of the Nigeria Football Federation and the Ministry of Youth and Sports Development purchasing 20,000 tickets for supporters to attend the game at the stadium.

They’ve also arranged for free transportation for spectators from all throughout Abuja to the stadium, with approximately 24 designated pick-up points.

After a goalless draw in Kumasi last Friday, the two West African countries will meet at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium for the rematch.

The Super Eagles have only defeated Ghana once in their last six games, with Taye Taiwo’s 86th-minute goal at the 2006 Africa Cup of Nations.

The two teams previously met in a World Cup qualifier in 2001, when Nigeria won 3-0 at home after holding Ghana to a goalless draw in Accra.
