The former captain of the Super Eagles, Austin Eguavoen criticized the Federal Government of Nigeria, as top officials stayed away from the final burial rites of the former Super Eagles coach which started on Thursday and ended on Friday July 28 and 29 respectively.
Eguavoen who was not impressed by the absence of certain government officials spoke on this, “I am not shocked by the way the government has treated this event,” he said.
“For instance, most of us have not received the houses the government promised us when we won the Nations Cup in 1994.“You are only energized when you have been looked after.
“One keeps wondering if Nigeria is worth fighting for or even dying for?”
Keshi’s son, Femi, who also unhappy with the negligence of the Federal Government also blasted the government, for failing to keep their promises to the family.
“The federal government did not deliver on the promises they made to us as regards our father’s burial,” Keshi Jr. said.
