“If Nigeria doesn’t beat Ghana, I won’t watch the World Cup,” billionaire Aliko Dangote said.

Aliko Dangote, Africa’s richest man, has stated that if Nigeria fails to beat Ghana and qualify for the World Cup in Qatar, he will not watch the competition.

In March, Nigeria will play Ghana in a two-legged match for a spot in the World Cup in Qatar later this year.

And, ahead of the March, Dangote, who was in Abuja for the second leg of the World Cup, underlined how important the tournament is to him and Nigerians.

“It is vital not only to me, but to all of us here; that is what will make us proud as Nigerians,” he told reporters, according to Sun News Online. “I won’t go there if Nigeria doesn’t qualify,” he continued.

Both Ghana and Nigeria had poor Africa Cup of Nations campaigns, with the Black Stars exiting in the group stage and the Super Eagles exiting in the round of 16.

The Black Stars were absent from the 2018 World Cup and are seeking to make a comeback in Qatar.

They do, however, have six World Cup participants on their way to the event in 2022.
