STATEMENT ON THE DEATH OF AMODU SHUIABU BY VICE PRESIDENT YEMI OSINBAJO, SAN
The death of the Technical Director of the Nigeria Football Federation and former coach of the Super Eagles, Amodu Shuiabu, is a profound loss to the nation.
Coming just four days after the death of former player and coach, Stephen Keshi, Nigeria has lost yet another dedicated public servant who worked tirelessly to bring honor to our country. He led the national team to two World Cup Tournaments and answered the call to serve as National Coach on a number of occasions.
Indeed his life was dedicated to finding and grooming Nigeria’s best soccer talents and providing them the leadership and guidance with which they excelled.
Amodu Shuiabu’s work as National Coach of Nigeria’s national team brought gladness to the nation and fulfillment to many. His legacy is secured in the memories of Nigerians who will forever recall the exploits his teams recorded across the African continent and around the world.
His dutiful service spanned many years and our country is grateful for his selflessness and immense contributions. Though the nation is pained at his death, we take solace in the joyful memories he left behind.
On behalf of the people and government of Nigeria, I wish to express our sincere condolences to the family of Mr. Amodu Shuiabu on this loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family. We pray for God’s consolation.
Vice President, Federal Republic of Nigeria.
