NFF query Keshi

Thursday 27 March 2014

The Nigeria Football Federation have queried Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi for perceived acts of insubordination. 

The Federation are unhappy with some conducts of the 52-year-old, the latest being his decision to attend a media parley organized by TomTom, without express permission of his employers, on a day he was billed to have a meeting with the NFF's Technical Committee. 

Keshi was also queried for travelling to the United States without authorization earlier in the year, in spite of the fact that President Goodluck Jonathan was set to host the Super Eagles after the African Nations Championship (CHAN). 

"It is important we draw your attention to previous actions whereby you travel out of Nigeria without NFF's express permission," the query read. 

"Specifically," the letter continued "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." 

The letter which signed by Emmanuel Ikpeme was issued to Keshi on Wednesday, and the former coach of Togo is expected to submit a reply before the end of today (Thursday).
