Oliseh resigns,alleges sabotage

The former Nigeria World Cup star sensationally turned in his resignation letter, which was addressed to general secretary  of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Mohammed Sanusi, and dated February 25, 2016.

“Your contractual violations and the interest of the nation necessitates that I tender my resignation and recourse to the termination of our working agreement,” the resignation letter read in part.

A rented apartment in Abuja promised he and his two assistants after he was appointed in July 2015 has yet to be fulfilled.

He is also owed four months’ salary, while his assistants are also being owed for several months.

He further accused the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) of not giving him enough support to prepare the team for next month’s all-important AFCON qualifiers against seven-time champions and qualifying group leaders Egypt.

He said he received “so little help” from the NFF and has been soldering on under “unconducive working conditions”.

After his team failed to go past the group stage of the recent CHAN in Rwanda, Oliseh said they were not motivated enough to do so, he described the team as "a  car driving on an empty tank".
