He is expected to also explain issues behind the widely publicized
non-payment of players and coaches’ bonuses and allowances as well as his claim
to have fed the players while camping in South Africa ahead of the 2016 CHAN
tournament where Nigeria crashed out in the group stage.
NFF officials are said to be unhappy with Oliseh’s
appearance before the country’s law makers, saying it is a major distraction as
they are preparing to face Egypt later this month.For
