Enoh Summons NFF Over Super Eagles’ Poor Performance

admin | June 11, 2024

The Minister of Sports Development, John Enoh, has summoned the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), demanding a detailed technical report on the Super Eagles’ recent disappointing performances during the 2026 World Cup qualifying series in the June window.

The Super Eagles secured only one point out of a possible six, with a 1-1 draw against South Africa at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo and a 2-1 loss to Benin Republic in Abidjan during their third and fourth games in Group C.

These results leave the Eagles with a total of just three points out of a possible 12 in their quest to qualify for the 2026 World Cup, which will be jointly hosted by the USA, Canada, and Mexico.

In a statement from the minister’s office, Enoh expressed dissatisfaction with the outcomes, especially given the substantial support the NFF had received from President Bola Tinubu’s administration and the positive working relationship between the ministry and the federation.

“The recent results are unacceptable. Despite the immense support from President Tinubu and the high expectations of Nigerian football fans, the Super Eagles have underperformed. The NFF must provide a comprehensive technical report explaining the reasons behind this poor showing and justify why there shouldn’t be consequences for the disappointment caused to both the Government and Nigerians at large.”

Senator Enoh emphasized that Nigerian football fans demand and deserve answers and accountability from the NFF.
