He said Nigerians should not have fears about the team’s ability to produce good results during the event.

“The message is that, this championship, we have won it twice before, we are going for a third win.

“The team has prepared very well. They have been re-building over the past 15 months, which has been done well by the coach, which every Nigerian supported.

“They should just support and pray for the team and we will believe that the team will go all the way.”

Olajire said goalkeeper Austin Ejide, injured in the friendly game against Cape Verde, would be fit for the tournament.

He said team doctors were working on him and hopefully, he would be fully fit for the competition.
