NFF confirms Obuh’s resignation


The Nigerian Football Federation, NFF, has confirmed that the Flying Eagles Coach, John Obuh, has resigned.

Obuh, who guided the Nigerian Under 20 side to a poor performance at the ongoing FIFA U20 World Cup in Turkey, ha submitted his resignation letter to the NFF after arriving Nigeria.

The Flying Eagles dropped out in the second round of the completion after losing to Uruguay 1-2.

The General Secretary of the NFF, Musa Amadu, confirmed the receipt of the coach’s resignation letter to PREMIUM TIMES.

“The office has received the letter of resignation from John Obuh but we have not yet decided if we will accept his resignation or not because we still have to follow due process,” Amadu added while commending the coach for his service to Nigeria thus far.

“I want to say that he has served his country very well. As the coach of the Under 17 team, he played at the world cup finals; he has also won a championship in south Africa two years ago. He also took us to the Q-finals of the U20 in Colombia at the World Cup, and he also took us to the World Cup in Turkey.

“John Obuh has served his country very well and we wish him all the best in all his future endeavours,” the football scribe added.

Obuh was the coach of Sharks FC of Port Harcourt before he was appointed to coach the national team.
