In a post that he made on Facebook, Dalung said, “this is the joint delegation of Nigeria Minister of Youth & Sports and that of Ghana chatting with the participating players and having a hand shake with each while encouraging them to play as brothers and not as enemies as the victory of WAFU is a victory of ECOWAS.
