The Nigeria Television Authority NTA has been criticised by many for the poor coverage of Wednesday’s Africa Cup of Nations match between Nigeria’s Super Eagles and the Squirrels of Benin Republic.
This is coming after they were saddled with the responsibility of broadcasting the AFCON qualifying match yesterday, following SuperSports, announcing it would no longer continue broadcasting any Confederation of African Football content after the sudden cancellation of the deal between the continent’s football governing body and French company, Lagadere Sports.
#ShameonNTA went viral last night on Twitter and kept trending with the intention to blast the Nigeria Television Authority (NTA) for the ‘poor live coverage’ of the Nigeria Vs Benin football match.
At some point, the commentator made a laughable error; in a commentary he said; “Super Eagles 1, Nigeria 2” referring to Super Eagles and Nigeria like they were two different teams.

Professionalism is still alien to us. We're professionals on paper but deficient of it in practice. #ShameOnNTA

What happened to the equipment that was used to cover the 2000 AFCON and all the others games Nigeria played in the past? #ShameonNTA
