President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick, has said that he missed the burial of former Super Eagles captain and coach, Stephen Keshi, because he was unwell.

Keshi was buried in his home town in Illah, Delta State on Friday, with some key dignitaries from the football house missing.

Pinnick is one of the officials that has come under criticisms, but he insists that he was very involved with the arrangements and only missed the burial because of sickness. What he said below…

“It’s really sad the way we just use extreme languages. Right from the moment he passed, I have been actively involved greatly,” Pinnick wrote in response to a jibe on Twitter.

“I followed the motorcade from the morgue to the church in Benin. I was at the service throughout. I followed the motorcade to the stadium. I was there again throughout again.

“I did a two and half hour journey to Asaba. I did the entire programme with them. I had a private meeting with the family to reappraise plans.

“I woke the next morning unwell, threw up. On my way to Illah, I was struggling but had to reverse immediately, I got a member to leave Port Harcourt to attend which he did.

“You people should kindly find out the role I and the NFF played from his death to date.”
