In a reaction to the comments ascribed to Adokiye Amiesimaka, after he declared that the Super Eagles are not well prepared for the 2014 World Cup which kicks off next month in Brazil, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), has lambasted the ex Super Eagles winger. Amiesimaka told Goal in an interview last week: “I have said it over and over again that we are not ready for the 2014 World Cup. Everyone is talking about the provisional list, no one seems to be asking, ‘what of the technical crew? According to the NFF, “He is never going to be happy about other people going to play in the FIFA World Cup finals, because he never got to play at that esteemed level. He is spewing evil and ill-will for the whole nation and continent all in the pretext of a myopic campaign for an ex-team mate to be included in the technical crew.”
The NFF spokesman Ademola Olajire insinuated that the former international was being jealous and never sees anything good in what others do. “Mr. Amiesimaka has behaved true to type. At a time that good hearted ex-internationals are egging the Super Eagles on, expressing faith in them to do Nigeria and Africa proud and generally giving the players immense psychological boost, Amiesimaka has again erected his tent in the Sadists’ Corner, wishing the team failure,” Olajire wrote in a media release. Allegations and counter allegations are just all over the place, is it possible for us not to politicize everything in Nigeria?
