Stephen Keshi

After months of negotiations, Stephen Keshi and the Nigerian Football Federation had apparently reached an agreement that would see the former Super Eagles captain take charge of the Super Eagles for another two years but the NFF officials were a no show at Keshi’s planned contract signing yesterday.

Stephen Keshi was reportedly in Abuja to sign a deal with the NFF but all the officials were unavailable leaving the former Togo manager high and dry. The president of the NFF, Amaju Pinnick was reported to be out of the country and efforts to reach him for a comment proved abortive. Journalists were however able to reach the vice president, Seyi Akinwumi who confirmed that the plans to unveil Keshi were still in place but he was not going to be unveiled yet. “I’m in Lagos and the president is not in the country,” Akinwumi told “When we are unveiling we will let you know.”

Some parties are suggesting that the NFF are holding out until the change of government in Nigeria is finalized on the 29th of May before they finally assign Keshi his role as manager.
