Former Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh has withdrawn a lawsuit against the Nigeria Football Federation, stating that he did it for the interest of football in the country.
Oliseh resigned his position as Super Eagles coach, following what he termed breached of contract by the NFF.
“I have instructed my lawyers to withdraw the law suit against the NFF,” Oliseh announced on YouTube.
“After speaking with well-meaning Nigerians, who I respect a lot, I also believe it is useless joining issues with people who are bent on deceiving Nigerians and misleading Nigerians and diverting attention from the reality.
“Certain vested interest in the NFF put their own interests first before that of Nigeria. My position of putting Nigeria first was a hindrance to certain vested interests in the NFF.
“If you put Nigeria first, you will always have problems with the NFF.
“This also explains why the benefits of players and wages and coaches are always placed secondary, while other things like team building trips (for FA chairmen) will always be catered to first.”
Oliseh further alleged that rather than for the technical committee to offer him technical assistance, they prefer to impose players on him.
