Nigeria owes Keshi N10m

Nigeria head coach, Stephen Keshi is currently owed two months of his wages by his employer.

The amount for the two months owed Keshi by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) is N10 million (around $63,000).

President of the football federation, Aminu Maigari, admitted on Wednesday morning on a sports show via Silverbird Television that the Nigerian manager is also yet to get an official car and accommodation.

But he explained that the situation is not "deliberate."

"Yes he (Keshi) is owed two months but it is not a deliberate attempt by the federation to do so. Remember that he just returned from vacation. But that will be sorted out soon.

"Concerning the official car and house, as the president of the federation no one has asked me if I have a car of my own. There's an existing car which is six months old but soon we will have all this sorted out.

"And let me also say Keshi hasn't complained because he's focused on getting the job done. Last time a report about this came out he told me he didn't speak to anyone about it," said Maigari.
