Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi has withdrawn his resignation after a meeting with Nigeria Sports Minister Bolaji Abdullahi.
Keshi stunned fans when he announced, barely 24 hours after leading Nigeria to African Nations Cup glory, that he had handed in his resignation.
But on Monday night the coach met for hours with Abdullahi and, after the meeting, the Minister told KickOffNigeria.com the issue had been resolved.
"I have spoken to Stephen and the NFF President Aminu Maigari and apparently there were issues that weren't handled properly," Abdullahi said. "But what I can tell you now is that the issue has been resolved and Keshi is staying on."
