President of Matchmakers Consult International Limited, Shina Philips, said that arrangements have been perfected to have a flawless ceremony that will last for only two hours.

“We are expecting a good number of very eminent Nigerians at the event, but we are working assiduously towards compacting everything into two hours. Red carpet will start at 7pm and we are going to ensure we are on time.

“We realize that the Super Eagles players and officials would be traveling back to Abuja very early on Saturday to catch the Egypt Air flight to Cairo, and onwards to Alexandria, so we would be on time for everything so that the players and officials can retire back to the hotel early enough to have good rest.”
