Former Super Eagles Manager, Stephen Keshi, has said calling another former coach Sunday Oliseh to a hearing by the National Assembly through the House of Representatives Committee on Sports will not help the growth of Nigerian football and sports.
Speaking through his Manager, Emmanuel Addo, Keshi said it would be unfair to all the former managers of the national team, who have been fired not to be called and asked why they were asked out. “Most of the coaches in the past were fired but Oliseh chose to resign, so why the special interest on him”, Keshi reasoned.

According to Keshi, he would like to be called for a meeting on why he was asked out of the national team, and from his former coach Adegboyega Onigbinde, through Christian Chukwu, Shuaibu Amodu and Austin Eguavoen, all should be called to account for their stay in the national team while it lasted.
“I might be mourning the exit of my life partner but the fact remains that Nigerian football is being unduely distracted and the only way to get it back on track is to ask the real stake-holders to come together and talk. Whether they are coaches, ex-internationals or sports politicians, its about time to talk and talk seriously.”
