Abuja - The Nigeria Football Federation have issued a query
to Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh following the team’s ouster at the African
Nations Championship in Rwanda, News24 understands.
Nigeria crashed out of the 2016 CHAN after losing 1-0 to
Guinea, a situation Oliseh attributed to lack of payment of players’ bonuses
Oliseh, who has returned to his base in Belgium, is said to
have been issued a query by his employers to explain why the Super Eagles, who
have been topping Group C from the first game, could not qualify for the
quarter final of the tournament.

News24 also understands that there are reports of calls for the
sack of Oliseh.
Oliseh’s reply to the query will determine NFF’s next move,
though the federation is strongly behind the coach.
Oliseh has played 11 games since taking over as Super Eagles
coach in 2015, winning five, drawing four, and losing two.
