Last Saturday, I was in Sekondi, in Ghana Western Region, the town which will play host to Nigeria's Super Eagles during the upcoming Nation in Ghana. Nigeria has been seeded in Group B, alongside Cote D'Ivoire, Mali and Benin, in what many call the group of death.
I was in company of my friend Jide Alaka, from The Game in Lagos and we had a splendid time checking out the town and the stadium which I must say is very beautiful, see photos.
I look forward to seeing the Nigerian team triumph over new rivals Cote D'Ivoire in January and to go ahead and lift the trophy later in February.
