Meanwhile, Ghana and Nigeria were drawn to face each other in the final football fixture that would lead to qualification for the 2022 Qatar World Cup and the conversation is getting heated on social media.
In a street quiz that was undertaken by Betika, a young man who was asked about how Nigeria compares to Ghana discounted the question as unreasonable on the basis that the two countries are not comparable to each other in any way.
"There is no way you can compare Nigeria to Ghana. It is like comparing Infinix to iPhone which does not make sense," the gentleman said.
