The Senator representing Abia North in the National Assembly, Orji Uzor Kalu has called on the Federal Government of Nigeria to immediately sack the management of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) “for a better and more tactical management”.
Reacting shortly after the Super Eagles’ loss to Ghana in the 2022 Qatar FIFA World Cup, Kalu, who is also the Pillar of Sports in Africa, said it was a sad night for all soccer lovers!
In a Facebook post, the former Abia state governor noted that:” It is high time the entire Management of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) is overhauled.
“In the past five years, we have exercised patience with incompetence that should ordinarily be the best, not just in Africa, but the world. The reality is that football is the same as science courses like Medicine and Engineering where you can’t cut corners, otherwise, you produce quack and incompetent people.
“The Federal Government and Nigerians have supported the NFF beyond measures and since they can’t give us the needed result, they should be sacked for better and more tactical management.”
Augustine Eguavoen tutored the Super Eagles, last night, failed to make it to Qatar after playing 1 -1 with the Black Stars of Ghana. Ghana goes through on away goal rule.
Eighteen Eleven Media reports that the loss is the latest in a series of losses recorded by the Amaju Pinnick led NFF.
