    Congratulations Africa football Great

  • GLORY 2 years ago

    The right way to go. But I doubt that will ever happen in Nigeria.

    • Oakfield 2 years ago

      @glory. .. It can never happen for The foreseeable future bcs all of them want to coach the super eagles with or without qualifications.

      • @Oakfield, there is no even unity among Nigeria exfootballers. NFF president is suppose to be someone that has played as Super Eagle.

      • GLORY 2 years ago

        Hahaha..haha. Oh brodaman Oakfield, this your response is depressing to say the least. May God in His Mercy deliver our country. It just seems while every country, big or small are marching forward, Nigeria just keeps going backwards or at best standing still. Someone like ODEGBAS could have been a good option for NFF POSITION LOLZZZ. ONLY WORRY BE SAY ROHR WILL NOT WAIT A SECOND TO BE TOLD. LOBI SMALL CORNER EYE BROS GO TAKE DEY LOOK ROHR NOW OOOO. E GO EVEN START TO THINK NOW SAY ROHR NA JUJU OO.

      No @Glory, I don’t think it will happen in Nigeria anytime soon. The NFF is in the cabal of crooks who just want to keep siphoning money with impunity. I know these are allegations but platforms like scorenigeria have carried many stories shedding light on alleged financial misappropriation on the part of NFF.

  • MONKEY POST 2 years ago

    I tell you mehn… But in Nigeria those that have no connection with football contest for the post. You see someone that owns a shop in Alaba market maybe because of bad market, will be talking on how to contest for NFF president all because of the embezzlement there

    @ Igbekun, here lies my initial support for Rohr; happy we found someone ready to call the bluff of any threat of sack from these criminal politicians calling themselves sports administrators and my recent disappointment, which necessarily isn’t an attack on him personally but his seemingly loyalty to these cabal. But I am sure Rohr will be coming back to right many wrong, now knowing same NFF members really wanted him sacked using him as scapegoat for the team’s not too impressive recent performances, when we all know they have been the REAL PROBLEM FACING OUR FOOTBALL, SE in particular. @ Igbekun, majority of us here are Nigerians and have lived years in Nigeria before whatever. If anyone is waiting for evidence in Nigeria before speaking about things like corruption, external influence on team selection, such one can as well just forget about eradicating these negative vices. We are a third world country where secrets are forever open secrets. Extended family everywhere close knitted. Many of us might be far away in person from these people in office but yet extremely close through associates, to be abreast with every detail within n without.
