    We have only started screening exercise for a competition that will commence in three weeks yet CAF was generous enough to give every participating country one additional month of preparation yet we failed to take it now we are in dire situation.

    EndSars protest isn’t a genuine excuse for this abnormal late preparation because with better logistics thing should have been taken care of.

    Too much administrative red tape in Nigeria is our bane.Things never move fast the system is slow,halts and causes bottleneck.

    Thanks for your comment.l have made comments at different times that this present nff led by Mr. Pinnick has no short or long term plan for age gadw teams He just concerned about Super Eagles.lmagine preparation for a major tornament just commenced. Can it occur in the case of Super Eagles? I can tell you that preparation for Golden Eagles qualifications at Benin Republic which will start on 5th December 2020 will not start until second or third week in November 2020. Mark my word.
