The Akwa Ibom Stadium, nicknamed as ‘The Nest of Champions’, played host to the Super Eagles 2015 AFCON qualifier against South Africa in November 2014, and the match ended in a 2-2 draw.

The Eagles training camp is expected to open on Sunday, August 28.

Nigeria have two points from three matches, while Tanzania are on a point going into next month’s match in Uyo.

Egypt have already won the three-team AFCON group following the sensational withdrawal of Chad.
