Investigations have revealed that there seems to be a serious rift in the Executive Committee of Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, over a new contract for coach Stephen Keshi.
Africanfootball.com reports that while a section of the NFF leadership wants Keshi to be given a new contract despite failing to qualify Nigeria to the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations, another group of the football house opposed a new contract for Keshi.
It was gathered from a source within the NFF that those in support of offering Keshi a new contract are doing in order to win over Keshi’s “very powerful friends” in the NFF.
However, this group is opposed by a majority on the NFF Executive Committee who has stuck to a “unanimous decision” in October to sack Keshi.
It will be recalled that the NFF fired the coach only to later be forced to rescind this decision on the orders of Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan.
