The Super Eagles Coach, Stephen Keshi, who had resigned his appointment immediately after his team emerged victorious in the AFCON finals on Sunday the 10th of February against Burkina Faso has been persuaded by the presidency to withdraw his resignation while the authorities look into his dispute with the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF).
This much was disclosed by a source in the presidency who said The official said “Yes, it is very true that Keshi resigned his position ascoach of the Eagles. That he confirmed to us. It was quite alarming given the complaints hebrought up. There were a lot on things going on that the nation didn’t know.
“He informed us about backlog of salaries, hisofficial car that has only been on paper since he took office. Even in South Africa, money was a lot of issue. It is appalling but the key thing is that Keshi has calmed down and has agreed to continue as the coach of Nigeria.”
It would be recalled that Keshi had announced his shock resignation during an interview with a South African radio station, Metro FM. He had said on Monday night "I gave them (Nigeria Football Federation) my letter of resignation immediately after last night’s game, but I haven’t heard from them yet"
