The Governor of Anambra State, Prof Chukwuma Soludo, has established a viewing center for the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) final match in Awka, the capital city of the state.
The match will take place on Sunday between Nigeria and the host nation, Cote d’Ivoire.
A statement by the governor’s Press Secretary, Mr Christian Aburime, said the viewing centre is christened Solution Viewing Centre.
The statement added that it is the governor’s own way of supporting the Super Eagles, and also encouraging Anambra people to come out to cheer the nation’s team during the match.
According to the statement, there will be free drinks and popcorn for viewers. It added that Ekwueme Square was selected as the location of the viewing centre because of its space.
Parts of the statement read: “Aside the spacious viewing centre located at Alex Ekwueme Square, Awka, there will be side attractions which include a Disc Jockey (DJ) on stage, free popcorn and liquid to go with for everyone, guest appearance and many more.
“Soludo has consistently expressed his support for the Super Eagles and urges them to bring home the coveted cup.
“Like every Nigerian, the governor understands that football is one aspect of Nigerian life that does not know tribe, gender or class.
“Both the low and high express joy and happiness freely when their team flops or does well without restrictions.”
The viewing centre will be declared open by 7:00 pm on Sunday.
