Super Eagles assistant coach Salisu Yusuf will lead the country for two friendlies against Mali and Luxembourg.
Nigeria will face Mali in Paris on May 27 and they also face Luxembourg on June 1.
Both matches are to prepare the Eagles for the 2018 World Cup qualifiers, which begin in October.
The technical committee of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) rose from their meeting on Wednesday in Abuja and recommended Yusuf to lead the Eagles for the two matches.
He will be assisted by two coaches from the Premier League.
Yusuf, who recently visited Scotland to understudy the coach of Hearts FC, has been assistant to Stephen Keshi, Sunday Oliseh and was also involved with the recent arrangement led by caretaker coach Samson Siasia.
He has coached Enyimba and Kano Pillars.
