Members of the NFF Technical Committee; made up of Christian Chukwu, Paul Bassey, Victor Ikpeba, Mutiu Adepoju and Garba Lawal have tendered their resignation following the NFF President, Amaju Pinnick’s poor handling of Super Eagles manager, Sunday Oliseh’s embarrassing rant issue.
“The Committee recommended for his outright dismissal after they agreed that he had violated his contract”, a source disclosed.
According to reports, they all had suggested that the ex Nigeria international be fired for breaching some contractual terms but the Sports Minister, Solomon Dalung pleaded with his employers to give him a second chance.
“It is true that they are not keen to work again but I am prevailing on them to think twice because of their love and passion for the game and patriotism for the country. They cannot be treated with levity. They are heavyweights on their own and they are not paid a dime for their services.” Chairman of the Technical Committee Barrister Chris Green said.
A member of the committee also chipped in. “If they fail to take punitive action on him, he’ll mess them up. The problem is with Amaju because he wants to please everybody. They gave him the job on sentiment and that is the result. As for me, I can’t stay to watch him insult the Technical Committee. We all played for this country and deserve respect”, he stated.
