Nigeria will make a 10 minutes presentation to the CAF EXCO and thereafter will be allocated time to answer questions from its presentation. The Nigerian delegation includes NFF President, Ibrahim Gusau; General Secretary, Mohammed Sanusi and bid Coordinator, Mainasara Ilo.
The Independent Assessment Committee of CAF will submit their reports for assessment and discussions by the CAF EXCO. CAF’s team had previously visited Nigeria to assess facilities at different proposed host venues around the country.
