–As President Jonathan brokers peace between Pinnick and Giwa
The Super Eagles will prosecute their last two 2015 African Cup of Nations qualifiers in November with ‘sacked’ Eagles chief coach Stephen Keshi in charge.
The embattled coach regained his job following the meeting between President Goodluck Jonathan and the duo of NFF President Amaju Pinnick and Chris Giwa, who insists that he (Giwa) is the rightful boss of the Nigerian FA after an elective congress in Abuja held on August 26.
This development is understood to be part of the peace deal in the Nigeria Football Federation crisis after President Goodluck Jonathan mediated in the leadership saga that has infuriated FIFA who has threatened to ban Nigeria from international football if the Jos High Court case indicting the NFF President Pinnick was not struck out.
FIFA considers football issues being taken to civil courts as government interference and failure to resolve the crisis in the Nigerian FA will attract a ban that will last till May 2015.
Media officer of the Super Eagles Toyin Ibitoye on Thursday tweeted that Keshi is set to return to his job.
“Keshi Returns as @NGSuperEagles Coach.”
It is however unconfirmed whether the former Eagles captain was handed conditions for his return-like the recall of certain experienced Eagles stars in the fold namely Ikechukwu Uche, Obafemi Martins, Chinedu Obasi, and the introduction of Kelechi Iheanacho into the fold.
