Nigeria Football Federation appears to be waiting for the incoming Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government to assume power so that it could go ahead with its plan to say bye to the Super Eagles Head Coach, Stephen Keshi.
The much publicised new contract signing between the Federation and Keshi did not hold on Friday after all.
Prompt News gathered that the NFF leadership has perfected plan to dump Keshi, immediately the incoming government assumes power on May 29, before settling down.
It was gathered that the NFF ‘goons’ are of the view that Buhari has several challenges to confront ranging from security, corruption to economy than meddling in the affairs of the NFF.
While three members of the NFF executive committee showed up at the Glass House, none of the key figures was present.
NFF President Amaju Pinnick was said to be out of the country while his Vice, Seyi Akinwunmi , who is in the country did not turn up, suggesting that the contract signing was a fluke of sort.
Sports journalists who had laid siege at the NFF Headquarters left in annoyance in the evening when it was obvious that the contract signing will not take place.
On assumption of office, NFF President Amaju Pinnick, pointedly said he was not a fan of Keshi.
At his maiden Board meeting, Amaju went ahead to send him and the coaching crew members on refresher course abroad, a move seen by sports pundits as a ‘clever’ way of relieving the ‘Big Boss’ of his plum job.
However, this did not go down well with the Presidency and President Goodluck Jonathan, promptly stepped in , directing the NFF to retain him having won the Nations Cup in South Africa.
Ever since, the NFF has been playing a hide and seek game with Keshi and in the process toying with the emotion of football-loving Nigerians.
