OKITIPUPA – Owners of viewing centres and drinking joints in Okitipupa, Ondo State, are putting finishing touches to their business premises ahead of the Nigeria-Iran clash in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
The Super Eagles are billed to take on their Iranian counterparts on June 16 at Curitiba.
Mr Emeka Nwachukwu, a viewing centre operator, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that he expected a boom in his business during the match and others in the competition.
“I have serviced all my equipment — the decoder, the generator and bought more chairs. This is business time because I expect football fans to troop in,” Nwachukwu said.
“Watching football matches in viewing centres is fun as football fans will discuss issues. I pray that the Eagles go far at the Mundial,” Azeez said.
The Chief Executive Officer of Wonderland, a popular drinking joint, Ms Kudirat Akanbi, said she had a stock pile of assorted drinks ahead of the Eagles match on June 16.
“Football matches are best enjoyed with drinks. We have really prepared for our customers. I wish the Eagles good luck in their matches,” Akanbi said.
Another drinking joint owner, Mr Kehinde Badmus, said he was sure of making huge profits during the Eagles matches.
