Ilorin –   A team of inspectors from the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has declared the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo ready for next month’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier.

NFF’s Director of Communication, Ademola Olajire, said in a statement on Wednesday that the team was led by the Chairman of NFF Technical and Development Committee, Chris Green.

He said the team expressed delight with the state of the pitch during a final inspection carried out on Monday.

“We want to express our appreciation to the Akwa Ibom State Government and the people of the state for their co-operation in observing no activity on the pitch of the stadium.

“That has helped to retain the turf’s lush nature.

“The NFF is of the belief that this abstinence will be observed until after the match,” he quoted Green, who led a first inspection to the venue last month, as saying.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that NFF Executive Committee member, Ibrahim Gusau, and Deputy General Secretary Emmanuel Ikpeme were also in the NFF delegation.

NAN reports also that the Super Eagles are hosting the Bafana Bafana in Uyo on June 10 in the AFCON qualifier.
