The immediate past Media Officerof the Super Eagles, Colin Udoh, who has been covering the Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa, made this revelation late into the night, as the confusion and drama rumbled on.
Udoh confirmed that Keshi had indeed resigned , but that it was verbal and not written. As soon as the news went viral, after the Big Boss told Robert Marawa on South Africa radio station, Metro FM, that he had sent in his resignation after the celebrations, a series of emergency meetings were held.
In the end, the 51-year-old made a u-turn and withdrew his resignation. After a meeting with Nigeria‘s Sports Minister, Stephen Keshi has withdrawn his resignation.
The Super Eagles are expected back in the country today, although Efe Ambrose and Victor Moses, have returned to the UK.
“I Have Decided To Continue With My Job” – Keshi
The 51-year-old has now released a statement which confirms his decision to continue in his role.
His statement below:
My attention has been drawn to reports in the media that I have resigned my appointment as the Head Coach of Super Eagles of Nigeria.
While I have had cause to express my displeasure over some issues that happened in the course of our participation in the AFCON 2013, which my team won by the grace of God, especially concerning my relationship with the Nigerian Football Federation, I have since had opportunity to discuss the various issues with all concerned.I am therefore pleased to say that I have reconsidered my position and have decided to continue with my job.
I want to thank the Honourable Minister of Sports, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, for his swift and kind intervention.
Stephen Okechukwu Keshi
