AFCON Final: Soludo Sets Up Viewing Centre In Anambra

The Governor of Anambra State, Prof Chukwuma Soludo, has set up a viewing centre for the 2023 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) final match in Awka, the state capital.

Saturday Telegraph had earlier reported that the match will take place on Sunday, February 11 between Nigeria and the host nation, Cote d’Ivoire.

In a statement released by the governor’s Press Secretary, Mr Christian Aburime, said the viewing centre is christened Solution Viewing Centre.

He also added that it is the governor’s own way of supporting the Super Eagles and encouraging Anambra people to come out to cheer the nation’s team during the match.


There will be free drinks and popcorn for viewers. It added that Ekwueme Square was selected as the location of the viewing centre because of its space.

Parts of the statement read: “Aside from the spacious viewing centre located at Alex Ekwueme Square, Awka, there will be side attractions which include a Disc Jockey (DJ) on stage, free popcorn and liquid to go with for everyone, guest appearance and many more.

“Soludo has consistently expressed his support for the Super Eagles and urges them to bring home the coveted cup.

“Like every Nigerian, the governor understands that football is one aspect of Nigerian life that does not know tribe, gender or class.

“Both the low and high express joy and happiness freely when their team flops or does well without restrictions.”

The viewing centre will be declared open by 7:00 pm on Sunday.
