NFF breaks silence over ban on Osimhen from Super Eagles



In response to some news mediums reporting that the Super Eagles’ forward, Victor Osimhen has been banned from the team, for his recent social media outburst, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has described the news as false.

While speaking on the report, NFF General Secretary, Mohammed Sanusi, in a statement on Thursday, expressed amazement at the reports, noting that the federation has neither instructed a process nor has a process been concluded to ban the player from the national team.

According to Sanusi, “The NFF hereby implores the media to join hands with the body to positively resolve issues and then focus on the big picture all the time, rather than needlessly escalate certain matters.

“There was no official communication from the NFF, yet some persons have gone to town to talk about a ban on Osimhen from the National Team. This is not good at all,” he said.

However, NFF Scribe added that the focus of the federation is to get the Super Eagles on track in the 2025 AFCON and 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

In his words; “Our focus is to resolve all matters around the Super Eagles and be able to look ahead with confidence to the 2025 AFCON qualifiers and the remaining six matches of the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualification series.

“This is not the time to spread falsehood and foul the public space the more.”

Recall that Osimhen recently went on a rant on social media against Finidi George, the former Super Eagles head coach, accusing him of allegedly questioning his commitment to the national team few hours after Finidi resigned from the job.
