Abuja - Vincent Enyeama will continue as captain of the Super
Eagles after his disciplinary issue was ‘dealt with administratively’, the
Nigeria Football Federation have confirmed.
There were initial concerns that the NFF had planned to
strip Enyeama of his role as captain of the team, after he was queried by the
Glass House for making ‘unguarded comments’ about the choice of Kaduna for last
month’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Chad. Nigeria won the game 2-0.
But chairman of the NFF Disciplinary Committee, Christopher
Green has posited that the issue has been settled without Enyeama being fined
and he will continue as the Super Eagles captain.

“He is the captain of the Super Eagles and will continue as
such,” Green said.
“He is eligible to play any day any time because he does not
owe us anything. The matter has been dealt with and he’s not being fined.
“The issue has been dealt with administratively and I can
tell you that there is no problem and everything has been settled and of course
he has been forgiven,” Green added.
Enyeama had voiced concerns over the security situation in
Kaduna prior to their Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Chad in June, but
went on to keep a clean sheet in the game.
The NFF however thought it necessary to ‘discipline’ the
most capped Nigeria international for making what they described as ‘unguarded
comments’, a development which drew so much criticism from Nigerians.
