Authorities are leaving nothing to chance when Nigeria’s Super Eagles meet Kenya’s Harambee Stars today in a World Cup qualifier.
Government sources say Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta or Vice President William Ruto would be a special guest of honour at the big match.
As a result, sources close to the Football Kenya Federation stated that tight security is being put in place for the match, with more than 1 500 policemen to be on duty at the Moi International Sports Centre.
Nigeria will also have some heavyweight representation of their own.
On Sunday evening, Nigeria’s High Commissioner to Kenya, Ambassador Akin Oyateru flew into Nairobi from official assignment abroad.
He quickly welcomed the advance party of the Nigeria Football Federation and instructed mission staff to provide the team with full support.
