ASAP ADVOCACY WALK: A Day To Stand Against Substance Abuse In Nigeria

Promoting, building, and maintaining a drug-free nation is the central goal of the MTN Anti-Substance Abuse Program (ASAP). It has also formed part of MTN’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

At a time the world can already be quite confusing for some young adults, drugs create even more confusion. When misguided or misinformed, they act on misinformation without being able to weigh the gravity of their actions. This is why the MTN Foundation has continually partnered with the NDLEA and UNODC to create awareness of this by organizing several activities annually to create a deliberate message on the dangers of substance abuse.

Today, June 25th 2022, we embarked on an advocacy walk to send a message that drug abuse kills! We started off at the Old Parade Ground, Area 10 in Abuja with a large crowd that included Odunayo Sanya (Executive Secretary MTN Foundation), Dennis Okoro (MTN Foundation Director), Mrs Folusho Ajayi Adelekan (National Programme Officer of UNODC), Haruna Lukman (NDLEA Agency Secretary), Chinyere Kalu Olugu (Deputy Director, Drug Demand Reduction Directorate), and ended up at Millenium Park.

Speaking at the event, MTN Foundation Executive Secretary, Odunayo Sanya said: “Most important is the lesson we take from here. I’d like to say thank you to our partners – NDLEA and the UNODC. MTN Foundation is the CSR arm of MTN and is funded by 1% of MTN’s profits after tax. And MTN has remained true to that commitment for more than 17 years.”

She also encouraged people to continue the conversation. “The ASAP walk is an event, but the conversation continues. We’d like each one of us to take this conversation to our communities, families, and states (for those not residents in Abuja). Let’s push the narrative and save our youths from the menace of drug abuse.”

Speaking on continuing the conversation, we would be hosting the national stakeholders’ conference on drug abuse. This conference is to enable the engagement of key stakeholders in the drug space to deliberate on strategy, policy and issues around substance abuse, towards proffering solutions to emerging issues relating to substance abuse. The Stakeholders’ Conference will be at Banquet Hall of the State House, Abuja on the 27th of June and will be streamed live on our YouTube channel.

Missed out on the walk, see the gallery for pictures from the event.

Goals galore, music, freebies, food, and drinks were in abundance at the football match between Nigerian celebrities, media personalities, and comedians to mark World Malaria Day.

This was a viable and friendly football tournament among Nigerian celebrities to drive support for the eradication of malaria. The event was held at the Campos Mini Stadium in Lagos Island on the 25th of April, 2022.

Osimhen Calls on Nigerians To Be The 12th Man

Moshood Abiola National Stadium, Abuja

The Super Eagles of Nigeria are aiming to qualify for a place at the World Cup taking place in Qatar later this year, as they take on perennial rivals Ghana at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium, Abuja.

Both countries come into this fixture on the back of debatable poor form. Despite winning all three group stage games at the African Cup of Nations in Cameroon earlier this year, the Super Eagles, ranked 32nd in the latest FIFA World rankings, have managed only one win in their last five home games, while Ghana has not won any of their last five games across all competition.

The Super Eagles have a strong squad but have a few injury concerns. Speaking yesterday at his pre-match press conference, Coach Augustine Eguavoen, said Samuel Chukwueze and Innocent Bonke are big doubts.

“Chukwueze and Bonke are under observation. The result hasn’t come. The medical team is still working on them. I’m expecting a report from the medical team once they get that to me at 9pm tonight we will know if they will be on the pitch or not. But we have enough personnel in the team that can do the job,” he said. It remains to be seen if Eguavoen will be tempted to start a lethal attacking side comprising of Emmanuel Dennis, Kelechi Iheanacho, and new man, Ademola Lookman all starting behind Victor Osimhen.

Victor Osimhen has called on Nigerians to be the 12th man in the stadium to provide a much-needed boost. “We’d be playing with our 12th man, that is, our fans. With the way they’d support us, we have a chance of getting this world cup ticket. It won’t be easy. We have to give respect to the Ghanaian team. They have some great quality players, but we are ready also. We have great quality individuals that can win games for us. We also have good squad depth. We’re looking forward to this game as a group,” Osimhen told NFF TV.

Meanwhile, Odion Ighalo has promised they’d give their best to clinch the ticket to the world cup. “We’re not going to go to sleep because it’s going to be a difficult game. Ghana will come all out because they have nothing to lose. We just have to give our best – 110%, take our chances, fight from start to finish. We are going to win by God’s grace,” he says.

This is more than just bragging rights between the two countries. We will be LIVE at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium, Abuja to cheer the Super Eagles as they attempt to qualify for the World cup for the 7th time. Join us.

The Nigerian U-17 female team, The Flamingoes, made light work of their opponents, DR Congo, defeating them 5-0 on Saturday, March 19th, in Benin City, to qualify for the next round on an 8-0 aggregate scoreline.

The Flamingoes convincingly won the first leg 3-0 in DR Congo with goals from Blessing Emmanuel, Tumininu Adesina, and Taiwo Ajakaye setting up the tune for the second leg.

Opeyemi Ajakaye continued where she left off in the first leg by opening the scoring in the 5th minute of the game. She wasted no time in getting her second nine minutes later to make it 2-0. Oluwatunmininu Adeshina made it three in the 23rd minute before Doosur Atume added a fourth in the 62nd minute.

Super Falcons Set To Qualify For Africa Women's Cup of Nations

Stade Robert Champroux in Abidjan

Nigeria’s senior female football team, the Super Falcons, took a giant stride towards qualification for the 2022 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations by beating Cote d’Ivoire 2-0 at the Moshood Abiola Stadium last Friday.

Ifeoma Onumonu got both goals on either side of halftime, as the Super Falcons put up a decisive display to thrill the Abuja fans in the tie’s first leg.


The second leg will be played today, Wednesday 23rd February 2022, at the Stade Robert Champroux in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, by 5pm.


The Super Falcons head coach, Randy Waldrum was bullish of his side’s chances ahead of the game. He says they won’t sit back on their two-goal lead in the tie but instead would look forward to scoring more goals to put the tie to bed.


“I’m confident. We got the win and scored two goals (in the first leg), but we all know there are two legs to it. So, we have to come out with the attitude that we have to score goals here and win the game. We can’t sit back and try to protect that two-goal lead.”


Asisat Oshoala will miss the game as she is still sidelined with an injury, but according to Waldrum, this will not deter the girls. He says, “I think the girls have moved on. It was disappointing the day she was injured. For a few hours, it was a bit of shock, but then they realized the next player had to be ready to play. Their mind is completely on the game.”

The Super Falcons, the reigning African champions, will be aiming to qualify for the tournament, which holds from the 2nd to 23rd of July 2022 in Morocco. An added incentive for the Falcons is that the four semi-finalists from the Women’s Nations cup will qualify automatically for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup that will be played in Australia and New Zealand.


A win, draw or a loss by a one-goal margin will be enough to see the Super Falcons through. We wish the Super Falcons the best of luck as we will be cheering them on today.

Iheanacho: We Were Not Scared of Egypt

Match winner, Kelechi Iheanacho was pleased with our 1-0 against Egypt and declared the team’s aim is to get to the final and win the tournament.

Coach Eguavoen also gave some insight into his tactics and how we managed to keep Salah quiet.

Kelechi Iheanacho’s 30th-minute strike was enough to seal the win and set the pace for the Eagles to qualify for the next round with a win against Sudan on Saturday.

Read every word from Austine Eguavoen, Kelechi Iheanacho, and Egypt coach, Carlos Queiroz‘ post-match conference below.


Kelechi Iheanacho (Man of the Match):

I am happy to represent my country, I am happy to score and hopefully, this team can work together and achieve our aims, get to the final, and win the tournament.

We prepared for this game and the competition, we have been working hard since we resumed in Abuja. Egypt are a strong team and they have great players but we were not scared of them. We have confidence and we have a good team.


Nigeria coach, Austin Eguavoen:

The reception has been great since we arrived in Garou. It has been an interesting tournament from the first game.

We know the strength of our players. We know Ejuke is good from the left side, and it was impossible to substitute Simon. It was a tactical change and Ejuke had chances to finish the game. For Umar, maybe the first time on such a big stage, he gave me some excuses after the game and we will talk to him later.

Salah is one of the best players in the world. The strategy wasn’t a specific marker, but we instructed the players to close him down at any time and there must be a second player behind the marker.

The same set of players, every coach has their style, philosophy, and leadership. I told the players to see me as their brother and father. For my assistants, I called them my colleagues. We have a path towards the same direction and we have the privilege to serve the country.


Egypt coach, Carlos Queiroz:

It was clear in the first half, we had a bad first half. Our opponent dictated the game, they deserve to take the lead in the first half. In the second half, we created chances. We had a clear penalty and the referee didn’t award it. The situation of the penalty is not an excuse for our defeat. It was not our day and also for the referees. It was a penalty and it was impossible for VAR not to check it.

Nigeria deserves their win, we will recover and be ready for the next two games. We respect Nigeria a lot, we didn’t play well in the first half. In the second half, we dominated. We lost the ball very quickly, we lost cohesion, but in the second half after the first half conversation, we played and control the game.


The Super Eagles play Sudan on Saturday, January 15, 2022. We will be cheering the team and hoping we pick up three more points.

Nigeria vs Egypt: Press Conference

Super Eagles coach, Austine Eguavoen, spoke yesterday to the press ahead of the Super Eagles’ first match of the tournament against Egypt. He believes his boys are ready for today’s showdown and the other games. Meanwhile, Egypt coach, Carlos Queiroz was full of praise for the Super Eagles in his press conference.

Read every word from Austine Eguavoen and Carlos Queiroz’ press conference below…

Super Eagles coach, Austin Eguavoen:

About the game Vs Egypt tomorrow:

I have been in this tournament before in 2016 and we finished with the Bronze medal, one thing I can guarantee is that the boys are ready to contest and fight in every game. They (Egypt) have their game plan and we have our plans as well, we shall see how it turns out tomorrow.

Eguavoen on European responses on the tournament:

We have to respect people’s opinions, but there are regulations to release players. It boils down to the individual players, you have to fight for it. We also battled such when we were playing and we fought it because it’s a privilege and honour to play for your country.

Eguavoen on winning the tournament:

It’s a joyful thing to win the AFCON, we will work hard to win, but we have to take it game by game. It’s about the team and country, I am not looking at personal glory, I am looking at the honour we will bring to our country.

Eguavoen on Jamilu Collins:

Collins should arrive tonight, he had issues with his club and the issue has been resolved, he will arrive tonight.

Eguavoen on the appointment of Portuguese coach, Jose Paseiro:

I can say, I am the boss of the new coach (Paseiro), and we have been talking. Collaboration is good, anything we are doing here, it’s important we build a team for him to continue when he takes over and add his own style. It’s important for us to have a good team for the World Cup qualifiers.

Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa:

“This is my last AFCON and I want to give it my best just like other competitions I have represented Nigeria. I will always give my best when I am called up, either tournament or the qualifiers.”


Egypt Press Conference

Egypt coach Carlos Queiroz:

It’s a pleasure to play against such a great nation (Nigeria) with many great results and players. They have quality players, we want to be among the best in the tournament and play against the best countries.

I have experience in different competitions, you can’t reach the top of the world if you don’t give it a step. Our ambition is simple, we want to win every time and focus, we also want to play the best football, because the team that plays good football stands a chance of winning.

Egypt captain Mohamed Salah:

Nigeria has players to win the tournament, I am just one player in my team. I don’t take questions and reactions personally, they have good players, but we will try our best to win tomorrow.

I am proud to have fans all over the world, there is always pressure to perform in all the games because of the fans.

I would love to win a major title for Egypt, I am proud to wear the shirt and give my best. I was happy when we qualified for the World Cup after decades of missing the tournament. Team award comes first, I want to win with Egypt. We will do our best to win the tournament, we have a good team.

 The ‘little tournament’ controversy:

“Klopp was saying it as a joke, he wants us to come. He told me, he wishes me to win, I don’t know what he said to Mane. In England, they regard the AFCON as a big tournament.”

MTN Partners with NIMR for Oligo-Synthesis Lab

The on-going pandemic has made it imperative for nations to be self-sufficient in the design, development, and deployment of reliable testing kits to respond effectively and timely in any outbreak situation.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and as MTN Nigeria’s contributions to strengthening the health system particularly research institutions, we collaborated with the Nigerian Institute of Medical Research in establishing an Oligosynthesiser laboratory. This took place on the 13th of August, 2021 at the NIMR Auditorium in Yaba, Lagos state.

The Oligo-Synthesizer is an equipment that allows for the local development of primers for the indigenous production of test kits for COVID-19 and other outbreak diseases. Utilised to its full potential, the lab will contribute significantly to the quality of medical research and development in Nigeria and West Africa. It will drastically reduce the cost of COVID-19 pandemic response by making test kits cheaper to produce, save lives through timely and affordable testing and build local capacity in this area.

The project scope covers the supply of complete accessories for the Oligo-synthesiser and two years’ worth of reagents. In addition, it caters to the provision of support and maintenance services for the equipment and accessories for a period of one year and training of the technical staff of NIMR.

The educational landscape has changed due to the pandemic thereby necessitating a paradigm shift to e-learning. Based on this, we learnt our support to the University of Lagos to organize a one-day international colloquium to deliberate and offer solutions for repositioning Open Distance Education and E-Learning for resilience and inclusiveness.

The event themed “Recalibrating Open Distance Education and E-learning for Resilient and Inclusive Education” aligns well with our vision of leading the delivery of a bold new digital world as connectivity is required to access E-books, E-journals, Learning Management Systems and Virtual classrooms.

This one-day conference featured keynote speakers from Nigeria, South Africa, UK, and Canada as keynote speakers and panelists. It served as a vital platform to deliberate, exchange ideas, present insights, and proffer solutions for repositioning Open Distance Education and E-learning for resilience and inclusivity in Africa.

The event was held at Nurudeen Alao Auditorium, Lagoon Front, UNILAG on September 16th, 2021.
