Later in the evening, the Black Stars will take on Nigeria’s Super Eagles in a bid to secure a place for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

On Friday, lawmakers who had gathered to conduct the day’s business were seen dressed in the jerseys of the senior national team, Black Stars, ahead of the clash.

The pews were also draped in the national colors in an effort to uplift the spirit and boost morale.

While the numbers on the floor weren’t enough, lawmakers seemed pretty excited about the prospects for Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
