By Richard Jideaka, Abuja:
The Director-General of the National Sports Commission Alhassan Yakmut has said that the commission will investigate the immediate and remote causes of the face-off between the Nigeria Football Federation and U-23s coach Samson Siasia.
Mallam Yakmut said the NSC will look into the reasons for the delay in the payment of Siasia’s salaries by the NFF.
He said that though the NSC has no quarrel with the N500,000 fine imposed bn the NFF on Siasia over his outburst over unpaid salaries, Yakmut noted that it was also right for Siasia to be paid what is in his contract.
“I am not against the fine imposed on SIasia as coach of the U-23 by the NFF if that is what is their rule books as obtainable in other places but as a worker he deserves his pay and we are going to look into what is causing the delay with the NFF officials,” Yakmut told Completesportsnigeria.com.
