Nigeria’s Minister of Sports, Solomon Dalung, has insisted that the federal government has not abandoned the children of late Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi.
He promised that they will be catered for, as soon as President Muhammadu Buhari approves funds for them.
Dalung was speaking in Asaba, Delta State, on a visit to the state governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, to solicit for support for the National Youth Games this month.
He said: “Of course, we had the challenge of the paucity of funds which even characterised our preparation for the Olympics. When we are able to get funds approved for us we could be investing in the children and the family because the man has gone but left a very great family.
“Whatever the Federal Government approves would be invested so that it can sustain them instead of going to organise a burial for people to come eat and drink. That was the wisdom.”
