NFF to decide on Keshi TV role
Posted: 15 January 2012 Time: 6:08 pm
Top officials of the NFF will meet on Monday in Abuja to decide on Stephen Keshi's television role during the Africa Cup of Nations.
Keshi, along with assistant Daniel Amokachi, are scheduled to be part of a heavyweight studio crew bursting at the seams with former internationals and coaches.
But there has been oposition to their participation from certain quarters, with the major gripe being that are required to give full focus to their primary responsibility
NFF General Secretary Musa Amadu told KickOffNigeria.com that NFF President Aminu Maigari and members of the board will be in Abuja this week to deliberate on the matter.
"The board will have to sit and decide on the matter this week. The President will be here and the coaches will have a chance to defend their participation.
"If the board find their explanation satisfactory, there is no reason why they will not go," Amadu said.
If Keshi and Amokachi get the NFF approval, they are expected to depart on January 19, but will return a week before their February 15 friendly with Sierra Leone.
