“Let me first of all congratulate Keshi and the board of the NFF. Now that he has been re-appointed, I will like him to really concentrate on his job, most especially in building the national team from the home front.

“When we have a good team from the home front, we will have a strong team and also have a good number of players to choose from.”

Ekpo stated further: “Keshi should keep doing what he knows best because even if you give someone all the best advice you can give, such a person may not know when he is doing something else. So my advice for is that he should concentrate on his job and not allow criticism to affect him.”
