NSC Launch Probe Into NFF/Siasia Face-Off

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.

    Good. Better still, pay the coach his outstanding salary while your investigation into salary delay is on going.Remember, no responsible man can perform with an empty stomach while we expect positive result from him.

  2. I have been trying to see what is the reason why someone’s salary is reduced by N500k for complaining about not been paid the same salary. This is koro-koro broad day robbery. It is primary school kid bully. The NSC is even shaking mouth. It seems the NFF is more powerful than the National Sports Commission or council or whatever. The NSC should take a firm and decisive stand in this kind of matter that is so demeaning and oppressive to a Nigerian. Falana and these so call human rights busy bodies should see a real case of oppression in this.
