Sunday Oliseh, former coach of the Super Eagles, has decided to withdraw his lawsuit against the Nigeria Football Federation ‘after speaking with well-meaning Nigerians’.
In a new video posted on YouTube on Monday, Oliseh said: “I have instructed my lawyers to withdraw the lawsuit against the NFF.”
The one-time skipper of the Super Eagles also claimed to have requested assistance from the technical committee of the national team, but instead of granting his request, they imposed players on him.
He said: “After speaking with well-meaning Nigerians, who I respect a lot, I also believe it is useless joining issues with people who are bent on deceiving Nigerians and misleading Nigerians and diverting attention from the reality.”
Oliseh also accused officials of the NFF of being selfish and in the habit of ‘putting their interests first’ before that of the nation and the national teams.
“Certain vested interests in the NFF put their own interests first before that of Nigeria. My position of putting Nigeria first was a hindrance to certain vested interests in the NFF. If you put Nigeria first, you will always have problems with the NFF.”
“This also explains why the benefits of players and wages and coaches are always placed secondary, while other things like team building trips (for FA chairmen) will always be catered to first.”
