NFF settles Keshi, Obuh, Ikhana salary arrears
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) yesterday disclosed that the four months outstanding salaries of the Super Eagles technical crew will be paid today.
The federation’s publicity committee chairman, Chief Emeka Inyama who made this known in Abuja yesterday at a media parley, said the coaches will also be paid advance salaries up to the month of June.
“As we speak, the four months outstanding salaries for coaches of the Super Eagles are being processed for payment. Hopefully they will get their alert tomorrow [today]. We are also working towards paying the salaries of the coaches of the team up till the month of June, before the start of the FIFA World Cup finals in Brazil,” Inyama said.
The CAF media committee member also hinted that the outstanding salaries of all national team coaches, including those who are no longer serving with the federation are being processed and will be paid next week.
Inyama further said that there is no problem between the body and the head coach of the Super Eagles.
We have a normal, cordial relationship with Keshi and we appreciate what he has done for the Senior National Team. He has worked magic, but the truth is that no tree makes a forest. The support of the NFF has also been total and key to the successes that the team has achieved over the past two and half years.
“There is no frosty or icy relationship between NFF and Keshi, and we believe the hullabaloo being created is the work of the fifth columnist,” he explained.
Also speaking the federation’s General Secretary, Barrister Musa Amadu, expressed optimism that the Eagles will not only be participants at the competition but will put up a better performance.
