Uncertainties surround the unveiling of Sunday Oliseh, who arrived Abuja on Tuesday, as Super Eagles Head Coach.

The National Sports Commission (NSC) insists due process must be followed in line with relevant procurement laws.

As a result the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) wrote the Bureau of Public Procurement (BPP), detailing terms of engagement of Oliseh as Super Eagles Head Coach, for necessary approval.

NFF President, Amaju Pinnick, confirmed on Tuesday that aside the letter to BPP, the NFF was following its own statutory processes before unveiling the new coach.

“I can confirm  that Oliseh has arrived and is meeting the technical committee. The committee will interview him and make their recommendation to the executive committee. We will look at it and I do not have fears that the board will approve his appointment. And because we want to follow due process in this exercise, we have written the Bureau of Public Procurement for their approval. Hopefully these processes can be concluded in time.”

When pressed for definite time for the unveiling, Pinnick said: What if he (Oliseh) says no after meeting with the technical committee.
