It appears the letter of apology written by Sunday Oliseh to appease the angered Nigeria Football Federation may not save the Super Eagles Coach.
Following the recommendation of the federation technical committee that the coach should be dismissed, it was gathered that the NFF Chairman, Amaju Pinnick took a different decision to keep Oliseh.
The Technical Committee is made up of such eminent Nigerians like Christian Chukwu, Paul Bassey, Victor Ikpeba, Mutiu Adepoju and Garba Lawal have resigned their appointments.
Noticing that he had been recommended for sack, Oliseh quickly sent a letter of apology, making the NFF to grant him a second chance after which he would be sacked.
However, the decision of Pinnick infuriated the committee on Wednesday as they all tendered their resignation letters to the NFF.
The committee argued that the appointment of Oliseh was through the back door in the first place and now that he had not been doing well in previous matches coupling with his caustic tongues on his employer, Oliseh should be relieved of his job.
It was learnt that the Minister of Youths and Sports, Solomon Dalung had waded into the matter, throwing his support behind Oliseh and Pinnick.
But stakeholders in this matter rebuked the minister’s step, saying that if Oliseh is not sacked now, the coach would destroy the national team and rubbish the federation and Nigeria as a whole.
In another development, Pinnick has soft pedaled, saying that the apology letter might not be enough to keep Oliseh, now that members of the technical committee had resigned.
