Super Eagles Legends To Face World Football Legends in “Match Against Corruption”
World football legends are to storm Nigeria in December for a match against Nigeria former internationals and entertainment stars to battle against corruption in the country.
The match organisers, Chief Alex Ajipe of Klick Konnect Networks International Limited and Canada based, Abi Goodman of Oz Consulting firm in a release, said the event, tagged “Match Against Corruption”, will hold at the Abuja National Stadium on December 8, during which the world legends will tackle the former Nigerian internationals and top entertainment stars to kick out the cancerous corruption in the country.
Goodman, who explained that the Nigeria team will be managed by former Super Eagles Technical Adviser, Bonfrere Jo, added that the commitment to eradicate the scourge from the country was based on the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) position that fighting corruption is a global concern.
“Fighting corruption is one of the three cardinal agenda of the federal government of Nigeria. The others are the economy and security. However, the government cannot succeed in its effort to secure the country and reposition the economy without a successful fight against corruption to delegitimize it and make it unpopular among Nigerians.
“The anti-corruption match will be part of the efforts to raise awareness on the fight against corruption and to mobilize all stakeholders in the Nigerian project to key into the fight.
“It is being organised as part of activities to commemorate the International anti-corruption day which will fall on Sunday December 9th 2018,” Abi said.
