Sports Minister Refutes  Links With Peseiro For Eagles

Sports Minister, John Owan Enoh has refuted the report making the round that he was in advanced talks with former Super Eagles head coach, Jose Peseiro over a potential return as Nigeria’s senior national team manager. 

Enoh in a press statement signed by his Special Adviser Diana Mary Nsan, said the author of the report fabricated it with the sole intent of sensationalism and spreading falsehood. 

He  noted that  it was not his job to influence or interfere in critical decisions designated to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and that his immediate task is to ensure that the NFF properly functions and the sports sector is revamped under the Renewed Agenda of President Bola Tinubu.

“We have been made aware of some news circulating in certain media channels about the Honourable Minister of Sports Development, Senator John Owan Enoh, supposedly in advanced talks with José Peseiro for a potential return as Coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria. We want to clarify that this news is entirely false and has been fabricated to create sensation,” the Sports Minister as quoted as saying. 

“The Sports Minister, Senator John Owan Enoh, does not interfere or influence critical decisions of the federations, particularly in this case, the NFF. He operates with utmost decorum and ensures that the federations meet the required expectations and standards in the discharge of their duties.

“The Honourable Minister of Sports is committed to ensuring that the sports sector in Nigeria achieves monumental success under the Renewed Hope Agenda. Therefore, we urge Nigerians who love sports , critical stakeholders, including the media, to continue supporting the Federal Ministry of Sports Development and disregard this false news.

“All updates from the Ministry of Sports Development and the Federations will be communicated through authorized and appropriate channels.”
