Super Eagles star Henry Onyekuru will be out of action for six weeks following a hamstring injury and this will therefore rule him out of next month’s 2019 AFCON qualifier in South Africa.

Onyekuru was a late sub in both the qualifiers against Libya in Uyo and Sfax.

He assisted for the Eagles fourth goal scored by Samuel Kalu in Uyo.

According to Turkish football, he now has a hamstring injury and this will mean he will miss Galatasaray’s three UEFA Champions League matches as well as the Istanbul derby against Fenerbache.

Onyekuru is on loan to Turkish champions Galatasaray from Premier League club Everton.

Amaju Pinnick has been re-elected president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) for a second four-year term. Pinnick, who is also the first Vice-President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), won 34 votes to beat former NFF president Aminu Maigari, who received eight votes.

Taiwo Ogunjobi, now former general secretary of the NFF polled two votes, while there were no votes for amateur club owner Chinedu Okoye.

The majority of the previous executive committee was returned on the promise of continuity.

Pinnick’s first tenure was characterised by a consistent power tussle with Chris Giwa, who also claimed leadership of the country’s football four years ago.

Ahead of the Elections, The NFF electoral committee had announced that Maigari is now only on a “provisional clearance” AFTER they had earlier cleared him for the polls in Katsina.

Reports claim Maigari has received overwhelming support from across the country ever since he declared his intention to return to office after a highly successful tenure between 2010 and 2014.

And there is probably a ploy from Pinnick to stop him from contesting.

A top source has also reported that Chris Giwa has got a court order to stop the NFF elections going on right now in Katsina.


Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Barrister Solomon Dalung has re-iterated his stance that Nigeria signed no treaty with World Football Governing Body.

 FIFA and stated that he will defend the constitution of Nigeria, thereby discrediting the NFF Elections billed to take place in Katsina tomorrow.

The CAASABA 2018 has come and gone it is left, to be seen what the Nigerian Athletics Federation have learnt from the various challenges, and hitches that came with it.

The Arrival period and opening day encountered too many difficulties, from miscommunication to alleged abandonment of some National Teams at the Airport even down to no proper arrangements for journalists, this has led to widespread criticism by both local and international bodies. 

Another amazing experience was the falling of the Tank which supplied water to the swimming pools, This challenges faced has also been escalated in many ways which has also dented the Nations Image even as they seek to bid for the Worlds athletics championships.

Solomon Ogba came out to refute some of the claims categorically calling the media agents who reported some of the news as “blind” and he also added that the Tank fell a 100m from the stadium in an area under construction. The question still remains has Nigeria not got what it takes to Host Africa in one city? How then will they want to host the world in 2023.
