2015 Nations Cup: Eq Guinea president buys tickets for fans

Equatorial Guinea president Teodoro Obiang Nguema has paid for 40,000 tickets for fans to attend the Africa Cup of Nations in his country.

The nation replaced Morocco as hosts only in December and there are concerns the games will be very poorly-attended.

“We must give solemnity to this event, we have to buy tickets to fill stadiums,” said Nguema.

“Let those who have the means help.”
