The Nigeria Football Federation has condemned, in strong terms, a report in a national sports paper of Wednesday, 13th January 2016 which detailed imagined ‘poor conditions’ in the camp of the Super Eagles B in Pretoria, South Africa.
The said report had talked of ‘inferior’ NIKE kits being used by the team at the pre-CHAN camp in Pretoria and unsubstantiated ‘distractions here and there,’ all attributed to a nebulous ‘highly placed source’.
NFF’s Assistant Director (Communications), Ademola Olajire said the report was littered with so much falsehood that it was clear the reporter was out to cause disaffection and damage morale in the camp ahead of the 4th African Nations Championship.
The Super Eagles B delegation is heading to Rwanda on Friday (15th January).
The Super Eagles’ Media Officer, Toyin Ibitoye, has said the report is the handiwork of a detractor and that the reality on ground is far from what was painted by the reporter.
