Sports Minister Demands Accountability from NFF Following Super Eagles’ Poor Performance


Minister of Sports Development, Senator John Owan Enoh, has urged the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) to furnish a detailed technical report following the Super Eagles’ underwhelming performance in the June FIFA window.

The Super Eagles managed to secure only one point from a possible six, drawing one-one with South Africa in Uyo and losing one-two to Benin Republic in Abidjan, marking their third and fourth games respectively in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying series.

These results leave the Super Eagles with a total of just three points from a possible twelve in the four games played so far in their quest to qualify for the 2026 FIFA World Cup, which will be jointly hosted by the USA, Canada, and Mexico.

Expressing dissatisfaction with the outcomes, Senator Enoh highlighted the significant support received by the NFF from President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration, along with the positive working relationship between the Ministry and the NFF.

He stressed the need for the NFF to provide a comprehensive technical report explaining the reasons behind the poor showing and justifying why there shouldn’t be consequences for the disappointment caused to both the government and the Nigerian populace.

Senator Enoh emphasized the demand for answers and accountability from the NFF, asserting that Nigerian football fans deserve transparency.
