Eagles to play Libya, Rwanda in 2018 CHAN

Nigeria will tackle 2014 champions Libya, Rwanda and Equatorial Guinea in the group stage at the 5 African Nations Championship taking place in Morocco, 13January - 4 February 2018.

In 2014, Libya won the championship beating Ghana in the final, while last edition was hosted by Rwanda in 2016.

Nigeria, whose best outing was a third-place finish in 2014, will be making their third appearance at the tournament and should be fired up to make amends for a disappointing outing a year ago. Nigeria and Libya will play what could be the first of three global matches in 2018, as both nations are drawn in the same 2019 Africa Nations Cup (AFCON) qualifying group as well.

Morocco was chosen to host the 2018 CHAN after Kenya was stripped of its rights to host the continental tournament due to lack of infrastructure. Group C teams will play their matches in Tangier. They beat Ethiopia 3-2 on aggregate in a playoff after Egypt withdrew from the competition. CAF, as a result on Friday, banned Gabon and Djibouti, who also withdrew from the competition after playing the first leg against Ethiopia, from competing in the 2020 edition of CHAN.

SC Department of Workforce Releases October Jobless Numbers
Government jobs, largely from seasonal gains in educational services, recorded the largest growth in employment with 7,100 jobs. The unemployment rate was 8.1 percent in September of 2017 and dipped down to 7.5 percent in October of 2017.

Equatorial Guinea are tipped to be the underdogs in the group due to their inexperience at global level.

Cote d'lvoire, Namibia, Uganda and Zambia will slug it out in Marrakech in Group B.

The other section comprises 2011 runners-up Angola, Cameroon, Congo Brazzaville and Burkina Faso.
