Sports Minister, Sen. John Enoh Summons NFF Over Poor Results | MarvelTvUpdates

Senator John Owan Enoh, the Minister of Sports Development, has demanded a detailed technical report from the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) following the Super Eagles’ disappointing performance during the June FIFA window.

The Super Eagles earned only one point out of a possible six, drawing 1-1 with South Africa in Uyo and losing 2-1 to Benin Republic in Abidjan in their third and fourth games of 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.

Senator Enoh expressed his dissatisfaction with these outcomes, especially given the substantial support the NFF has received from President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration and the positive working relationship between the Ministry and the NFF.

“The recent results are unacceptable. Despite the immense support from President Tinubu and the high expectations of Nigerian football fans, the Super Eagles have underperformed.

The NFF must provide a comprehensive technical report explaining the reasons behind this poor showing and justify why there should not be consequences for the disappointment caused to both the government and Nigerians in general.” Senator Enoh stated.

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

“Our supporters are passionate and devoted. They deserve an explanation for why our national team has not been performing to the expected standards since the last AFCON,” he added.
