Siasia Wants N1b From Nff, It’s Unfortunate —toro

Sacked Super Eagles’ coach, Samson Siasia is demanding the sum of N1 billion from his former employer, Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, for wrongful termination of his contract.


Samson Siasia
Reports monitored on Brila FM in Lagos early today says the former Nigerian international who failed to qualify Nigeria for the Africa Cup of Nations taking place in Equatorial Guinea and Gabon in January has dragged the NFF to an Abuja high court for sacking him without fulfilling some parts of his appointment contract. He said he wants N1billion as compensation for breach of contract.

Siasia said he was not given a 30-day notice prior to his dismissal as stipulated in his contract before the NFF went ahead to sack him despite owing him two months’ salary. He claimed that the NFF failed to secure a free and furnished accommodation in Abuja for him and he was also not given a fitness trainer as contained in his contract.

The NFF is, however, unperturbed by the action of the 44-year-old Siasia, who was given a four-year contract with a condition to qualify the Eagles for at least the semi-finals of the 2012 Nations Cup.

President of the federation, Aminu Maigari, said the NFF has received the ‘originating summons’ from Siasia’s lawyers, adding that the football authority is ready to confront the sacked coach in the law court. Media Officer of the NFF, Ademola Olajire, said the board has directed the legal department to begin work on the summons to enable the NFF prepare for the hearings.

Meanwhile, former Secretary General of the Nigeria Football Association, Alhaji Sani Toro, has condemned Siasia’s move to take his former employer to court.

Toro argued that the coach should have found another way of seeking redress other than resorting to the law court.

The former member of the House of Representatives opined that the issue must be properly handled by the NFF and settled out of court as soon as possible because of the series of court cases the football authority is currently facing

Good move by sia. Nff as a body is a disgrace, why wouldnt them for once do what is proper even if they want to sack sia it should be in a civilised manner. But my only fear is the incompetence of the nigeria legal sector

It cost the NFF more than N5 Billion for missing out of the nations cup as a result of Siasia's failure to get the nations to the nations cup as stipulated on the contract. So Siasia fail his contract,and NFF could as well demand damages worth N6 billion from Siasia,

But I dont get your argument.

Sacking of coach is common everywhere infact the job called football coach is the most uncertain and unreliable job I ever known. The logo is Hire and Fire so if anyone take the job of football coach he should know that when the winning is done no problem but when loosing is done the next thing is exit door Siasia should know this quiet well and by him going to court for 1bn Naira compesation then this is going to be a complete career suicide because as far as NFF is concern he is finished, anyway I wish him the best in the court case. Goodluck Sia1

So NFF didnt fulfil their side of the contract and Siasia also failed to fulfil his; equation don balance na.

Given the high level of embezzlement in the country, Siasia getting 1b for 'wrongful' termination of his contract is chicken feed. They should settle him undecided
