The Super Eagles are set to battle Benin Republic in a crucial World Cup qualifier on Monday, seeking to revive their qualifying campaign.

After three consecutive draws, Nigeria’s chances of reaching the 2026 World Cup hang in the balance.

Lesotho currently tops the group with five points, leaving the Super Eagles two points behind.

However, the group remains open, with Benin Republic sitting third with four points. Finidi George’s men are determined to take it one match at a time and secure a much-needed win.

“We’re very much aware of why we are here and what we have to do,” said head coach Finidi George. The players want to go to the World Cup and they have resolved to give their all in every game going forward.

Benin Republic, led by former Eagles coach Genort Rohr, poses a significant challenge for the Super Eagles. Rohr’s knowledge of the Nigerian team and his assistant’s experience as the Eagles’ former head of scouting may give Benin Republic an edge.

The match kicks off at 5 pm Nigerian time, with Gabonese official Pierre Ghislain Atcho as center referee.

– Nnamdi Kanu seeks negotiation with FG over ongoing trial
– Kanu’s lawyer moves two applications before the Federal High Court
– FG’s counsel says defendant should approach Attorney General for negotiation

Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has expressed willingness to negotiate with the Federal Government over his ongoing trial.

Through his counsel, Alloy Ejimakor, Kanu informed the Federal High Court in Abuja of his intention to seek negotiation under Section 17 of the Federal High Court Act.

Ejimakor had earlier moved two applications before the court, including one objecting to the jurisdiction of the court. If the applications are denied, Kanu’s lawyer plans to invoke Section 17, which promotes reconciliation and amicable settlement among parties.

Meanwhile, the Federal Government’s counsel, Adegboyega Awomolo, stated that the defendant should approach the Attorney General of the Federation for negotiation.

Justice Binta Nyako, the presiding judge, clarified that the court’s role is to hear cases, not to solicit negotiations. Kanu has been in DSS custody since June 2021, facing terrorism-related charges levelled against him by the government.

His lawyer’s latest move may signal a potential shift in the case’s trajectory.
