The Ghana High Commissioner to Nigeria has revealed on Wednesday that five percent of the total tickets for the match at the 40,000 seater Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi, will be given as complementary tickets to the Nigerian contingent.
Rashid Bawa, the Ghana High Commissioner to Nigeria, made this promise in Abuja as he met on Wednesday, the Nigerian Sports Minister, Sunday Dare.
The Ghanaian in his remarks said his visit was to assure Nigerians that football, especially the upcoming 2022 FIFA World Cup playoffs would not divide the two countries where long standing relationship, collaborations and friendliness exist.
Apart from the complementary tickets, the diplomat said the chartered flight that will airlift the Nigerian delegation to Kumasi, will be given a landing permit without hassles.
The Nigerian authority thanked his visitor for the gesture and promised that his country will reciprocate this hospitality ahead of the return leg in Abuja on Tuesday, March 29, 2022.
“This administration of President Muhammadu Buhari has identified sports as a tool for promoting unity and peace, not only within Nigeria but across the World so you can be assured of our hospitality and large heartedness,” the Minister said.
Sunday Dare assured that all the logistics to ensure a successful hosting of the return leg game in Abuja have been put in place at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium Complex, Abuja.
As a reminder, the first leg, initially scheduled for Cape Coast Stadium, will finally take place at Kumasi Baba Yara Stadium on March 25.
