Ghana vs Nigeria: CAF approves ultra-modern stadium renovated by Aliko Dangote


Africa’s football governing body has accepted the 60,461 capacity Moshood Abiola sports Stadium located in Abuja for the important playoff match between Ghana and Nigeria on the 24th of this month.

The stadium which was renovated by billionaire businessman, Aliko Dangote has been trending since Ghana is said to be grappling with a venue to host Nigeria for the first leg of the big game, prompting FIFA’s suggestion of a neutral ground for the match.

The Dangote group, a business empire owned by Aliko Dangote took up the renovation of the stadium as a way of giving back to society. The group reportedly committed an amount of $1 Million for the project which was neatly executed.

During the commissioning which was earlier held, Dangote said, “You can be rest assured of our continued support.”

“You can always knock on our doors. We shouldn’t allow our stadia to collapse. Nigerians have a very strong love for sports, so I think we need to complement Government’s efforts to ensure that everything works.”
