But Why? Keshi Gets NFF Query Over Misconducts- Report

Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi, has only today (28 March, 2014) to respond to a Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) query over certain decisions he has taken in recent times.

As contained in a letter, signed by the NFF Technical Committee Director, Emmanuel Ikpeme, Keshi has been asked to explain why he went on leave without permission, thereby missing a reception hosted by President Goodluck Jonathan in February.

Most recently Keshi did not attend Tuesday’s technical committee session with the NFF.

“It is important we draw your attention to previous actions whereby you travel out of Nigeria without NFF’s express permission,” read the NFF letter to Keshi.

“Specifically, you travelled out of Nigeria before 13 February 2014, the day President Jonathan received the Africa Nations Championship (CHAN) team, causing us huge embarrassment.

“Your request for leave approved by the NFF was from 15 February – 10 March 2014 but you left before 13 February and returned 26 March.

“The Technical Committee meeting on 25 March was called off because you said you had flight hitches from USA.

“As a responsible organisation, we have no other option than to issue you a query to explain how all these events unfolded.”
