Keshi Set To Sign The Dotted Lines With NFF

Stephen Keshi through his agent is willing to work with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) president while also apologising on behalf of Keshi for the failure to qualify Nigeria for the 2015 AFCON.
Keshi’s agent Ado in an interview with journalists described the relationship be­tween NFF president Amaju Pinnick and his client as one of mutual respect.
 According to him, any perceived prob­lem “whether real or imagined” between them would always be resolved amicably in the interest of the game and the coun­try they both love.
“Keshi has always related well with Amaju as a brother and as chairman of the Delta State Sports Commission be­fore now. The chairman’s passion and achievements over the years bear elo­quent testimony to what he is capable of replicating in his new job at the NFF,” he said. 

Ado further described as unfortunate the story in certain newspapers that Keshi called the president of the federa­tion a liar. Ado also said Keshi was not behind the arrest of former NFF boss Aminu Maigari by security operatives and apologised to the country for the failure of the Super Eagles to qualify for the 2015 edition.
On the issue of the NFF reportedly offering his client a “slave contract”, Ado explained that he was the one who made the statement in the context of reports that “Keshi was going to sign the contract without negotiations”.

 “I made that statement that Keshi will not sign the contract until he has made an input. That contracts are not take it or leave it documents. And that only a slave has no say when his destiny is being de­cided,” he said. Ado confirmed that they have been vindicated by the federation’s meeting with them and issues that the federation and Keshi had reservations about were thrashed out.
