Baba Ijebu has reportedly signed a partnership deal with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to be the official Gaming partner of the Nigeria National teams.

According to the statement by NFF, the deal was signed on Monday 13th September 2021, at a modest but colourful and instrumental ceremony in Lagos.
The Nigeria Football Federation and Premier Lotto Limited (popularly and fondly referred to as Baba Ijebu) sealed the partnership that immediately made the gaming company the Official Gaming Partner of the National Teams.

This deal with Baba Ijebu is coming just a few weeks after the NFF signed yet another partnership deal with Air Peace airline to become the Sponsor of Nigerian National Teams, and which President of NFF and FIFA Council Member, Mr Amaju Melvin Pinnick described as “an ordained union of two super brands.”
Pinnick and Chairman of Air Peace airline, Barrister Allen Onyema dwelt on the strength inherent in Nigeria’s diversity, and the opportunities and possibilities flowing in a country of 200 million people with 378 different nationalities, and football as the strongest unifying force.
“Air Peace epitomizes unity, patriotism, humanity and selflessness. Ourselves at the NFF have followed not only the meteoric rise of the company but its patriotic fervour and sense of nationalism. It is an organization that believes firmly in the Nigeria project, just as we do.
“This contract covers all the National Teams, from the Super Eagles to the junior teams. Let me say it here that the Super Eagles will be flying to Cape Verde on Monday for their FIFA World Cup qualifier in the latest brand of aircraft just acquired by Air Peace. The NFF is happy to partner with this highly responsible organization that has Nigeria at the heart of everything it does.” He also assured that NFF will keep to the letter and spirit of the contract.
