He also thanked Nigerians for the love, sympathy, prayers and support shown to him and his family since she passed on. The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) described the death as “a loss to the football community in Nigeria”. Frank Ilaboya, chairman, Edo Football Association, made the remark at the occasion. Ilaboya, who represented the NFF, prayed God to grant Keshi and the family the strength to bear the loss. “We pray God to strengthen coach Keshi to move on with his career,” he said. In his tribute, former Super Eagles head coach, Shuaibu Amodu, described the deceased as “a sister, friend and mother”.
