She disclosed via her X handle (formerly known as Twitter) @NgoziEzeilo, on Saturday, February 10.

She said it is a sad reflection of the current economic realities in Nigeria that a professor will have to save for 5 months to be able to visit a fellow West African country.

Ezeilo said she has decided to watch the CAF AFCON final from the comfort of her home.

“My alternative plan is to cut down on expenses. I have recharged my DSTV for N19,800, and I plan to buy twenty litres of fuel to generate power because we didn’t have electricity during the Semifinals. The match is a must-watch for me as it will be a breath of fresh air and a chance for me to forget about Nigeria’s many woes. “
