Accompanied by the Nigerian envoy in Ethiopia and other aides including Presidential Spokesman, Dr Reuben Abati, President Jonathan who was received by the NFF President, Alhaji Aminu Maiagari, said he came to reassure the players and officials that he will remain ever supportive of the national team.

He charged the team to go all out for victory in Sunday’s match, because Nigerians from all over the world expect nothing less than the World Cup ticket to Brazil 2014 World Cup. “I am sure that you will not only qualify for the World Cup but we are going there not to add up the numbers but to make an impact at the championship”, he said.

Responding NFF Ptresident, Alhaji Aminu Maigari, who was in company of Technical Committee Chairman, Barr. Chris Green, General Secretary Musa Amada, Head, Trechnical Emmanuel Ikpeme, board member Shehu Adamu, assured the President that the team will not let the nation down. He again pleaded for continued support to the NFF to enable it carry out its statury duties to which President Jonathan acceded to.

Team Captain Vincent Enyeama, said the visit of the President who is attending the Golden Jubilee meeting of the African Union (AU), could not have come at a better time and promised that the players will show that they appreciate his concern for the welfare of the team with a good outing on Sunday.
