NSC set to investigate Keshi’s N1billion suit

The National Sports Commission (NSC) is set to investigate the disagreement between former Super Eagles coach, Stephen Kesh and Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) .

Keshi, former Super Eagles coach who was sacked earlier in the month, is suing the NFF for N1billion for ‘wrongful dismissal’ and ‘defamation of character’, a development which hasn’t gone unnoticed by the sports supervising body in Nigeria, the NSC.

Speaking on the development, Director of Sports at the NSC, Ademola Are said necessary action will be taken when their investigation is done with.

“When we investigate the issue I am sure necessary action will be taken,” Are told Brila FM.

“We cannot really say anything categorically now until we have the relevant documents and find out what transpired between the two parties,” Are stated further.

He  also added that they have already been told by the NFF that they are not in breach of their contract with Keshi, as Keshi’s camp feels.

“When it (Keshi’s sack) happened, Chris Green (NFF’s legal and disciplinary committee chairman) said they were not in breach of any contractual agreement with Keshi and they have looked through their papers and everything, so I am sure the National Sports Commission will make appropriate  announcements after taking a look into what actually transpired,” Are stressed.
