The Extension appeal concerning the deadline for the submission of Nigeria’s confederation Cup representatives as requested by the NFF has being granted by CAF.
The slated deadline was October 14, the same date the final was fixed but circumstances beyond the Federation’s control meaning the Aiteo Cup final cannot be feasibly held this weekend.
With the Aiteo Cup final to be held in Asaba, it would pose logistical problems for the NFF having the game a day after the Uyo tie before leaving for Tunisia next day.
Knowing fully well that the Super Eagles are expected to engage Libya in the first of a double-header in Uyo on Saturday while the team depart for Tunisia for the reverse tie on Monday.
The semi-finals of the Aiteo cup , it will however take place as scheduled on Wednesday.
Rangers squares up against Nasarawa United in Kano while Kano Pillars battles Katsina United in Lagos.
Winners of the Aiteo Cup will represent Nigeria at the 2019 CAF Confederation Cup
