Segun Adeniyi, chairman of the panel, revealed this on the presentation of the panel’s findings to the Minister of Sports, Bolaji Abdullahi.
“We discussed with all the actors involved in the bonus row crisis, the technical crew, the leadership of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), six home-based players and the team captain Joseph Yobo, who was not in Namibia but we understood was carried along by his teammates,” said Adeniyi.
“We tried to call Chelsea’s John Obi Mikel, Vincent Enyeama and Austin Ejide, but we could not get them, so we sent them SMS and it was only Joseph Yobo who returned our call.”
Adeniyi further noted that their non compliance with the ministerial panel couldn’t deter them from carrying out their job.
“The refusal of the trio of Mikel, Vincent and Ejide did not affect the job of the panel because we already heard from all the parties involved,” he disclosed.
The panel has made some far-reaching recommendations as to the welfare of the national team to the Sports Ministry and the National Sports Council (NSC).
