President Goodluck Jonathan yesterday delegated Senate President David Mark to lead a Federal Government delegation to Sunday's 2013 AFCON final match in Johannesburg.
A statement by presidential spokesman Reuben Abati said the step was to further boost the morale of the Super Eagles.
The Eagles are to encounter their Group C mates, the Stallions of Burkina Faso, again, in the final match of the 29th edition of the AFCON.
According to the statement, other members of the delegation are Governors Peter Obi of Anambra and Isa Yuguda of Bauchi.
Also on the delegation are the Ministers of Police Affairs, Navy Capt. Caleb Olubolade (rtd); State, Foreign Affairs, Prof. Viola Onwuliri and Works, Bashir Yuguda.
Abati said the President, because of urgent official commitments in London and Paris, could not be present in Johannesburg to lead the cheering for the Super Eagles.
The President asked the delegation to reassure the team of his full support and best wishes for victory.
He charged the delegation to ensure that the members of the team were properly motivated and in the best spirit possible to get a resounding victory for the nation.
