Minister of Youth and Sports Solomon Dalung has asked the Executive Committee of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, to go ahead and hire a foreign technical Adviser if they can source the funds to pay him.
Dalung who was locked in an over two-hour meeting the country’s football body however gave NFF a four-week mandate to get the report of previous 2017 Nations qualifying as well as the resolution of its technical committee on who becomes Super Eagles Head coach ready.
Just as the minister had posited since he assumed office in November, 2015, he equally lashed out at the officials of NFF following continuous crises that have trailed Nigerian football adding: “It was observed that instability is the major factor to Nigeria’s Super Eagles AFCON crash coupled with internal wrangling as well as lack of internal cohesion, lack of commitment, funds and destruction were the issues,’’ said a source who was at the meeting.
“We resolved that the main technical report of the key actors who supervised the qualifier which have not been made available to the board be provided in four weeks times.
“I also directed, having identified the problem, the board must go back and maintain strong internal cohesion. The issue of foreign coach was debated extensively but it was still referred to the technical committee and NFF.
“They need to show why the option of the foreign coach is viable, if it’s indeed viable, where do we get the fund to fund it. They are expected to present report to the minister in four weeks.”
