In a recent interview with Punch spoke well-nigh the plight of Nigeria’s ex-footballers and the struggle they squatter in the society.

See exercpts from the interview below….

There’s a unstipulated weighing that sportsmen and women lack educational qualifications , thus they are excluded from sports administration. Do you agree?
That’s total rubbish; nonsense. How educated are those in FIFA? In Nigeria , is it every politician that went to school? Some can’t plane write their names. But it’s only in my country that those in positions use demonic criteria to alimony people away. In other countries , if you are competent for the job , they will requite it to you. We’ve got lots of ex-footballers who are graduates , lawyers , doctorate stratum holders these days. Where are they? Some are doing very well in their various fields. I have been involved in the political system and things like this discouraged me from it. If it ways I have to be a cultist to get a position , I’m not ready for that.

But he insisted that I must be involved in their cultism activities. So , I disassociated myself from them. From that day , I made up my mind that I will drink my garri , rather than wilt a cultist. Like I said earlier , I’ve met politicians who can’t speak good English but considering they have godfathers and vest to various cults , they’ve been empowered. It’s total rubbish. I’m not wrung to say what needs to be said.

Is this the reason why you are not in Rivers to help discover and groom young footballers for the state?
I’ve made myself misogynist for Rivers State for so many years. But if you are not their member , they won’t requite you anything to do; they won’t involve you. You have to vest to a caucus , it’s at all levels. I have personal experiences , so I know. Nobody will squint at you if you are not involved. They know that someone like me will disturb their activities , so they won’t get me involved. I’m the only big name in sports in my state that they don’t undeniability for anything. So , it’s painful but hopefully , someday this will end.
