Super Eagles Captain Vincent Enyeama a while ago on Tuesday ignored call by the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF to appear before its Organisng and Disciplinary Committee over his purported comment before Nigeria confronted Chad in the first Nations Cup qualifier in Kaduna.

Enyeama was quoted to have expressed security fears ahead of the encounter following security concerns in both North West and North eastern part of the country.

Irked by his suggestion for possible change of venue, NFF Officials queried the France-based Goal keeper who upon receiving the letter tore it, though he subsequently apologized to reports.

Not still satisfied by his supposed apology, NFF summoned him but the Lille of France shot stopper rebuffed their call.

The country’s football authority had fined one of Super Eagles Midfielder Ogenyi Onazi $5000 following his on-the-pitch behavior which earned him red card and subsequent match ban from Confederation African Football, CAF.

As at the time of filing this report, no member of NFF Disciplinary committee was seen for comment over Enyeama’s failure to appear before them. Even a call put across to one of them was not answered as they were said to have been locked in a meeting.

Meanwhile, Super Eagles Head Coach Stephen Keshi respectedly appeared before the Organising and Disciplinary Committee of NFF to defend whether he applied to coach Ivory Coast National team or not.

Keshi who stormed Glasshouse, headquarters of NFF located within Wuse Zone 7 in Abuja at exactly 11:54 am on Tuesday immediately zoomed into the conference room where he faced Chris Green-led Disciplinary Committee in an almost two hour meeting.

Speaking to shortly after facing the NFF Committee, Keshi whose contract was renewed last month confirmed that he given details of how his name would have appeared as one of those who were shortlisted by Cote D’Ivoire Football Federation to coach its Senior National team.

According to the former Mali and Togo handler who was visibly angry over situations surrounding his invitation to appear before NFF, “We thank God for the victory in Kaduna against Chad. Now i think what we should be thinking of is how prepared we are to face and win our away match against Tanzania, that should be our mission right now not what media said about keshi.


“We need to change from all this little gossip and all these stuff, we need to go ahead and forge a formidable team which includes the press, the players, NFF so that we can conquer the world and conquer African Continent. My focus right now is to prepare for the game against Tanzania.”

On his meeting with NFF Disciplinary committee, Keshi who refused to divulge details of what transpired between him and the committee said “Everything went well but NFF will talk to you on that but everything went well. Like you Guys just know I never applied for Cote d’Ivoire job.”

On whether he applied for job in Ivory Coast, the former Super Eagles captain swiftly answered “No, My name is in almost every Nation. Should i take countries like Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania to court. It happens to every coach, is not a big deal.”

It would be recalled that NFF and Keshi have been at apparent running battle after his contract expired last year, a situation that delayed his contract renewal, one year after.
