Copy Of Keshi’s Letter To NFF After His Sack (See Photo)
Keshi was sacked by the NFF under controversial circumstances on July 4th, 2015 with reports claiming he was sacked for his lack of loyalty to his job.
The big boss according to the letter is requesting a huge N1 billion in compensation fees from the NFF.
The letter gives the NFF a 30-day ultimatum to respond to the demands.
The letter reads in part:
“We demand the retraction of your (NFF) defamatory documents, a written apology to our client to be circulated internationally and the sum of N1,000,000,000.00 (One Billion Naira) only as damages for defamation.”
“TAKE NOTICE that if you neglect, refuse and/or fail to heed these lawful demands within thirty (30) days of the receipt of this letter, we shall, without further notice to you commence action in an appropriate court to seek all lawful remedies that have accrued to our client as a result of your action.”

Meanwhile, the president of the NFF, Amaju Pinnick, has laughed off the lawsuit that the former coach Stephen Keshi has served the organisation saying “we have a lot of things to bother ourselves about”.
The NFF boss, however, said the legal team of the NFF will be handling the lawsuit, adding that there were many programmes that could bring benefits to Nigerian football that the leadership of the NFF were more concerned about.
