Nigeria vs Ghana: What Obasanjo Told Me In 2001 – Sunday Oliseh Speaks (Updated: 2 months ago)


Sunday Oliseh, a former Super Eagles captain, has revealed what former President Olusegun Obasanjo told him when he led Nigeria to clash with the Black Stars of Ghana in a World Cup qualifier back in 2001.

Oliseh was the captain of the Super Eagles when Nigeria and Ghana last met in a World Cup qualifier at the Liberation Stadium in Port Harcourt.

The match ended in a 3-0 win in favour of Nigeria, thanks to Tijani Babangida’s brace and a strike from Victor Agali.

The Super Eagles became the fifth African team to qualify for the 2002 FIFA World Cup finals in Japan and Korea after beating the Black Stars.

However, Oliseh has now revealed that Obasanjo told him prior to the match that he can see that captaining this great country [Nigeria] is not easy, adding that it is like ruling it.

He said that Obasanjo told him that he must win the match.

Oliseh disclosed this in a tweet via his Twitter handle on Wednesday.

“I will always remember what President Obasanjo said to me as I led Nigeria out for this game..” Oliseh, you can see captaining this great country is not easy, like it is Ruling it, You must win this match “… Great Memories & Naija forever,” Olise tweeted alongside the highlight of the video of Nigeria’s 3-0 win over Ghana.

Our Source reports that this is coming ahead of Nigeria’s 2022 FIFA World Cup playoff against Ghana.

Nigeria will face Ghana in Kumasi on Friday.

Austin Eguavoen’s men will then host Ghana in the return leg in Abuja on Tuesday.
