The Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, has vowed to give the Super Eagles $25,000 for every goal they score against South Africa during the AFCON qualifier on Saturday.

The morale of Super Eagles who will play against South Africa in this weekend's 2019 African Nations Cup qualifier at the FNB stadium in Johannesburg, has been bosted by Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta state, who promised to gift the players a sum of $25,000 for every goal scored during the match.
The Nigeria men's football team, are currently camped in Delta state ahead of their crunch clash against the Bafana Bafana on Saturday, November 17.
Recall that Gernot Rohr's men suffered a 2-0 defeat in the reverse fixture at the Uyo international Stadium in 2017. Though, they sit atop of Group E with nine points, one point better than Stuart Baxter's men, but this weekend's game will determine who finishes atop of the log.
"I am pleased to have the Super Eagles here in Asaba. We hope you make Asaba your home, and as a people, we will begin to follow your progress even more closely," Okowa said during his surprise visit to Eagles camp.
"We appreciate the giant strides Nigerian football is making and commend the leadership of the NFF for making Delta State part of its success story.
"For every goal scored by the Super Eagles in Johannesburg on Saturday, we pledge a reward of $25,000.
"Please don't put a limit to the number of goals you score on Saturday; try and score as many as possible."

The governor also promised to host the team when they return to the country as they will be playing a test game against Uganda on Tuesday, November 20.

Your state is unkept with pot-holes, bad roads everywhere. Who is this man for Christ sake?
