Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) President, Amaju Pinnick yesterday led a delegation of some eminent persons in the country’s football, including former Super Eagles coach, Austin Eguavoen to commiserate with the family of Nigeria legend Stephen Keshi, who died on Wednesday after he suffered what physicians described cardiac arrest.
With Pinnick were Chairman of the Delta State Sports Commission, Mr. Tony Okowa, chairmen of the Football Associations of Edo and Bayelsa States, Frank Ilaboya and Porbeni Ogun respectively, and renowned marketing consultant Mike Itemuagbor.
There were also some ex–international players.
The delegation was received by late Keshi’s brother-in-law, Ricky Aburimen and cousin, Ebuka Ofonye.
Pinnick delivered a condolence letter to the family, and reiterated that the NFF Board will soon meet to consider the most befitting way to immortalize the former Nigeria captain and coach.
