*NANF sends support to Amodu’s family
National Association of Nigerian Footballers has fulfilled its promises made to the widow of the late Super Eagles chief coach, Amodu Shuaibu.
This is in conformity with the association’s mandate reached at its Congress to take the welfare of families of late members as a priority in relation with the recession in the country.
In keeping with this, the NANF Exco was at the Surulere, Lagos home of the ex-Super Eagles handler and NFF Technical Director, Amodu Shaibu, where they handed over cash and other gifts items to Amodu’s widow, Mrs. Kuburat, in the presence of her children.
Mrs. Amodu was full of praises for the NANF’s team lead by Ex-Super Eagles star, Clement Temile, who made the presentation on behalf of the team which includes ex-five-a-side national team goalkeeper Segun Oguns, and other assigned members.
She thanked the NANF team for appreciating her late husband’s contributions to football development in Nigeria and finding time to visit the family as such crucial time of the year.
She expressed her reservation on the neglect of Nigerians and members of the football family who constantly visited their family house when coach Amodu was alive.
“NANF’s visitation and presentation put smiles on the faces of my family members,” she said Amodu’s widow used the opportunity to appreciate the leadership of the Nigeria Football Federation, for paying them, her husband’s outstanding entitlements recently, while also reminding the Sports Minister Solomon Dalung to fulfill the promise of providing employment for her senior son.
