It is no news that the Nigeria Super Eagles are not going to Equatorial Guinea for the Nations’ Cup come 2015 as they have failed to qualify by not beating the Bafana Bafana of South Africa few days ago even though they unturned the 2-0 scores to 2-2 and kept the record of not loosing on the home soil.
The failure to qualify has sprung lots of controversies and allegations, because Nigerians are not only disappointed but pained that we won’t be making an appearance at the tourney as the defending champions.
The Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi, the entire technical crew as well as majority of the players are not the only people to be blamed going by what grapevine in the Governor Godswill’s camp spilled to yours truly. I am going to quote my source words for words and after that cap my pen on this.
“The Governor somehow contributed to the Eagles woes as he decided to mix business with pleasure at a time when the Super Eagles were meant to be left alone in their hotel to prepare and concentrate on their match”
“I work closely with the commissioner of youth and sports in my state, how can Nigeria win when all they did was wine and womanize all night with Governor Akpabio and the director of protocols in the state?” “They came to train and prepare themselves for a match but every night Le Meridien hotels was filled with girls for the players on the orders of the governor courtesy of the director of protocols, Aniekpeno Mkpanam. We all knew the boys will be tired to finish the job they came for so I wasn’t surprised when their performance turned out the way it did” like I said I cap my pen!
