Dalung To Attend Oliseh’s Hearing

Solomon Dalung, Sports Minister, is believed will attend Sunday Oliseh’s meeting with the House of Representatives’ Sports Committee on Thursday.
The former Super Eagles Head coach resigned his appointment unceremoniously last month.
He is expected to brief the committee on the circumstances that led to his resignation.
 “The sports minister has insisted he be part of the committee’s hearing and so he will be in attendance on Thursday,” a sports ministry official informed.
The sports minister ordered Oliseh not to be sacked when Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) president Amaju Pinnick presented a recommendation of the technical committee that the coach be fired.
The NFF has said that this briefing was a major distraction as the Super Eagles is preparing for the must-win Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match against Egypt.
