    MR PRESIDENT this would have been you also CONGRATULATING your boys the SE if you had earlier given a PRESIDENTIAL ORDER for them not to SACK GENERAL ROAH!

    Mr Monkey, you just took the words out of my mouth. Thank you. An engaging President, like Zik of Africa, or Awo of Nigeria, would have prevailed on Amaju Pinnick to retain our very competent Coach (Rohr) from being fired just 2 weeks to AFCON, particularly when he almost qualify us to FIFA World Cup. Even President Babangida would use his Executive Order to put a stop to those corrupt NFF Officials from doing such horrific damage to our football.
    Buhari, Dare. Pinnick, and to a lesser extent, Omo9ja, Ugo, and Odagbemi have all failed us to our greatest regrets.
