Abuja - The Nigerian Broadcasting Organisation (NBC) has allayed fears that it might not screen the upcoming FIFA Confederations Cup to millions of soccer fans in the country.
The assurance follows the furore surrounding the failure to beam Wednesday's World Cup qualifier against Namibia, which ended 1-w to enhance Nigeria chances of qualifying for next year's FIFA World Cup.
The station's chairman, Alhaji Abubakar Jijiwa, confirmed the two tournaments will be broadcast.
“Our stance is that, definitely, Nigerians will watch the FIFA 2014 World Cup finals and the Confederations Cup that is coming up in a few days. A statement will be issued soon on the issue," he said.
The Super Eagles are Africa's representatives in the eight-team Confederations Cup, which is scheduled for Brazil beginning this weekend.
They are in an unpredictable Group B alongside world champions Spain, Uruguay and Tahiti.
