Nigeria Football Federation Sacks Stephen Keshi, Amodu Takes Over

The Nigeria Football Federation on Saturday terminated the contract of Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi after the NFF Executive Committee held a meeting in Abuja.

A statement from the football house stated that, “having thoroughly reviewed the reports/findings of the NFF Disciplinary Committee and NFF Technical and Development Committee, as well as having reviewed the actions and inactions of Mr. Stephen Keshi, in the performance of his duties as Super Eagles’ Head Coach, which we found to lack the required commitment to achieve the Federation’s objectives as set out in the Coach’s employment contract.”

“To this end and pursuant to the provisions of Clause 4.3 of the Employment Contract between Mr. Stephen Keshi and the NFF (The Contract) and the various clauses therein, the Nigeria Football Federation has decided to exercise its option to summarily terminate the employment contract of Mr. Stephen Keshi with the Federation with immediate effect.”

Keshi has been under fire since a report broke out he had applied for the vacant Ivory Coast job and it that has effectively put paid to his reign as the coach of the national team.
