Abuja - The Nigeria Football Federation has sacked Tijani Babangida as personal assistant to Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh.

Babangida, a former Super Eagles player, was disengaged with immediate effect after a meeting of the NFF executive committee.

“The immediate disengagement of Mr. Tijjani Babangida as Personal Assistant to Super Eagles’ Coach, Sunday Oliseh, as recommended by the Technical and Development Committee, was unanimously approved and General Secretary was therefore mandated to follow the due process in effecting his disengagement,” a NFF statement reads.

Babangida is known to always throw his full weight behind Oliseh’s decisions and actions.

The NFF has also warned Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh to avoid a repeat of a video outburst where the manager called his critics insane.

“In line with global best practices, the Committee decided that Coach Oliseh MUST henceforth report to the NFF General Secretary and the Technical and Development Committee, and should be ready to defend his entire program before the Committee, including invitation of players and training programs.”
