The first leg matches are scheduled for the weekend of August 26-28, 2022 with the reverse fixture set for the weekend of September 2-4, 2022.
The Galaxies will host Nigeria in the first leg before travelling to Abuja for the return fixture as both teams battle for a ticket to the tournament in Algeria.
The Galaxies qualified to the final round of the qualifiers after recording a 1-0 win (4-0 aggregate) against Benin in the return leg of the preliminary round qualifiers last Saturday.
The Ghanaians had crushed their West African opponents 3-0 in the opening leg at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium.
