Abuja (Precise Post) – The Chairman of Federal Capital Territory Football Association, Adam Mouktar Mohammed has welcomed Super Eagles back to their traditional home in Abuja after a 10 year absence even as he charged them to go all out to beat their Ghanaian foes and grab the ticket to World Cup in Qatar.
Mouktar commended the Super Eagles for their doggedness and disciplined play in Kumasi, Ghana which earned them deserved draw in the face of several obstacles intended to frustrate them.
‘I must commend you for your dogged display in Kumasi, Ghana because what you did was no mean feat. Playing against one of our eternal rivals with their vociferous and hostile supporters, respite that you went, saw and almost conquered but come this Tuesday in Abuja, you will put the icing on the cake by grabbing the ticket to Qatar 2022.

The chairman also commended the FCT Minister Mallam Muhammad Bello for the active role he has played in ensuring that Eagles don’t lack support in Abuja and the Minister of Sports Sunday Dare,who made sure the main bowl of the Stadium came back to life and is in good condition to host the match.
‘I must also commend the FCT Minister, Muhammed Bello for the active role he has taken in ensuring that the Super Eagles don’t lack support come this Tuesday. With provision of 100 buses to convey fans from different parts of Abuja to the stadium for free, this is a massive statement of intent that all hands are on deck to ensure that the eagles don’t lack in whatever capacity’.
‘The Minister of Sports deserves accolades for ensuring that the main bowl of the Moshood Abiola National Stadium is back in use after so many years,. A feat his predecessors tried to achieve but couldn’t.
Finally, Mouktar called on football fans to take advantage of the provision of free buses by the FCT administration to thronge the stadium and cheer the Super Eagles to victory.
