Bamaiyi will be assisted by Dakkada FC midfielder, Daniel Daga and Giant Brillars FC goalkeeper, Chijioke Aniagboso who will serve as first and second assistants respectively.

Bamaiyi replace Oluwatosin Adegbite, who led the Flying Eagles to glory at the U20 Wafu B tournament in Niger Republic.

Adegbite has since been ruled out of the AFCON U20 tournament due to injury he sustained while training with club Enyimba International FC.
