NFF Representatives Betrayed Asisat Oshoala At 2019 CAF Awards Voting by 360gistpilot(m): 10:27pm On Jan 08
More details have emerged as regards the voting pattern from the various representatives across Africa during the Confederation of African Football Awards which held on Tuesday in Cairo.

In documents released, CAF published the details of the voting process that saw to the emergence of Asisat Oshoala as the 2019 African Women’s Player of the Year for the fourth time while Sadio Mane was crowned the African Male Player of the Year.

It will be noted that for both the Men’s and Women’s Player of the Year, the first phase of voting was done by CAF Technical & Development Committee, legends, media and tech experts, coaches and captains of the associate countries of CAF while the voting for the second phase was done by head coaches/Technical Directors of CAF member associations and captains of CAF Member Associations.

The first phase of voting was done with 30 names on the shortlist for Men’s African Player of the Year and 10 in the women’s category while voting in the second phase was done with just the three finalists in both categories.

The three Nigerian media men that voted are Osasu Obayiuwana, a member of the NFF Reforms Committee who voted Oshoala third in his choice of five. His first choice was Malawian footballer with Jiangsu Suning in the Chinese Women’s Super League, Tabitha Chawinga.

Another Nigeria, Chisom Mbonu Ezeoke also voted Malawi’s Chawinga first, while Oshoala got her vote for a second place. The third Nigerian who voted on the platform of media is Tunde Adelakun who had Cote d’Ivoire’s Ange N’Guessan in the first position followed by Nigeria international Uchenna Kanu, South African midfielder Refiloe Jane, Oshoala and Kgatlana.

Among the legends, Perpetua Nkwocha, a former Super Falcons player voted Oshoala last, giving her just a point while giving her valuable five points to Cameroon’s Ajara Nchout. Despite the fact these Nigerians failed to vote for her as their first choice, Oshoala made up with votes from other countries to emerge winner with 351 votes as against 321, 247 votes recorded by Nchout and Kgatlana respectively.

Meanwhile, the Minister of Youth and Sports, Sunday Dare has eulogized Oshoala on her award as African Women’s Footballer of the year.

In a congratulatory message on twitter, Dare said “Congratulations to Nigeria’s Asisat Oshoala, Barcelona star for winning the CAF Women footballer of the year award. She represents the best in Nigeria’s female soccer.

In the same vein, former sports minister, Solomon Dalung in his own message said “This award is a reflection of your resilience and contribution to the growth of football in the country. You’re truly a shining star. “To whom more is given, more is expected, so having won this award several times, you’re expected to set the tune of exemplary leadership in women’s football. I urge you to inspire and bring hope to young girls in Nigeria who see you as a role model. May your light never grow dim”, Dalung said.

So many backstabbing.
Before anyone will come here with tales of how the others were better than her, you guys should know that other countries recognize our own more than we do.
A prophet is never recognize in his own home.
We need to stop all this backstabbing.
It's shameful


For those quoting me and talking about other countries voting oshoala against their own, remember those countries voted her because they have no representative from their countries.

Dis is exactly why we would kip having useless set of leaders in dis country. How is voting along patriotic lines now more important than voting based on merit? Now those who voted based on form and merit are now considered Judas abi? Oshoala had absolutely no impact whatsoever at d woman's tournament and only began seeing consistent action towards d tail end of last year.

Asisat won with over 20votes without Nigerian vote, what does that tells you?...... She clearly deserves the award.

She led Barcelona femini to women UCL final although lost to Lyon in the final, she even scored in the final.

She scored once in the women's world cup
She plays for the second best team in the world whilst the rest plays for shitty teams.

Even without Nigerian's votes, she still won the award; meaning that she is qualified for it, but her compatriots just won't vote her.

But why?
Why the bias?

Even Buhari would have voted for another person instead of Asisat. We just hate ourselves passionately.
Nigeria is indeed a snake pit filled with venomous people. If she’s went for a twerking or BBnaija competition I’m sure she’d have more votes from Nigerians. The way we celebrate meaningless and things without value in this country is so astronomical. Useless country with super useless leader and filled with useless followers.

Charity they say begins at home. No matter what may come, family first. Nigeria don't appreciate competency, we are too money conscious.probably the girl refused to play along. We are truly our enemies.

Lead them bawooo? She didn't even start the season with them nor is she their major player....
Buh she scored in the final shaa and I think she worthy of the award, alongside Nchout.

That is how Nigerians behave. Okocha too was betrayed by Nigerians thereby depriving him the opportunity of winning the Africa best footballer

The question is 'can voters from a particular country vote for a player from their country'?!

We need to know that before jumping to conclusion.
This could be a half bake news.......as usual.

We comment on it when we know the full detail.

From all of us @MANNABBQGRILLS. : CONGRATULATIONS OSHOALA!
