Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa said the team will not take the honour done on them by Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for granted.
Sanwo-Olu on Wednesday hosted the Super Eagles players and officials to the Lagos State Government House.
Musa in a tweet thanked the governor for his hospitality.
“It was a great honour to be hosted by the Lagos State government led by @jidesanwoolu. We don’t take it for granted in any way. We appreciate you greatly.”
The Super Eagles are camped at the Eko Hotels and Suites and will be departing to Cotonou on Friday morning via water for the AFCON game against Squirrels of Benin on Saturday.
The team after the game will return to Lagos to prepare for the final game of the 2021 AFCON qualifier against Lesotho at the Teslim Balogun Stadium on Tuesday.
Recall that CAF on Wednesday approved 30 percent 9f supporters into the Stadium.
Nigeria currently top Group L and a point in the two games will see them pick the ticket for the final of the 2021 AFCON tournament in Cameroon.
