NFF disciplinary committee declares Keshi’s case inconclusive

24 June 2015, 10:10

Abuja - After sitting on the disciplinary issues regarding Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi and Super Eagles captain, Vincent Enyeama, the Disciplinary Committee of the Nigeria Football Federation have confirmed they have submitted their judgments on the latter to the executive committee of the Nigeria Football Federation pending ratification, but says Keshi’s case remains ‘inconclusive’.

Keshi and Enyeama were both summoned by the NFF Disciplinary Committee to appear before it on Tuesday, even though the Super Eagles captain was conspicuously missing.

Keshi is being ‘investigated’ for reportedly applying for the vacant Cote d’ Ivoire coaching job, while Enyeama has been accused of making ‘unguarded statements against the NFF’s choice of Kaduna’ for the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Chad on June 13.

Speaking after their marathon deliberations, chairman of the committee, Christopher Green says they are still ‘investigating’ Keshi, but says they will handle Enyeama’s case ‘internally’ and ‘quietly’.

“In the case of Keshi we are still investigating and if I want to be completely honest with you, the case is inconclusive because we want to be thorough and get to the bottom of the entire thing which will take us to Cote D’ Ivoire to ascertain the claims.

 “But in the case of Enyeama, we want this matter dealt with quietly and internally because the noise this has generated is uncalled for.

“Enyeama is holidaying, so he did not come but we’ve reached our decisions and sent them to the executive committee (of the NFF),” Green said.
