KESHI’S SON LAMENTS ILL-TREATMENT METED TO DAD BY FG
It is no longer news that the final journey home for legendary Super Eagles coach and captain, Stephen Keshi, began yesterday, Thursday, July 28, 2016, in Benin, the capital of Edo State, with a Service of Songs, and ended today with his interment, in his homestead of Illah, in Delta State.
What may be news is that the family Keshi left behind, particularly his son, Stephen Keshi, Jnr, is not happy with the Federal Government of Nigeria.
The young man poured out his heart on his Instagram page, bemoaning the shabby treatment meted out to his great father and by a country he gave almost his all. Hear him:
“I sat in front of the federal government on national television a few weeks ago and they promised they would honor pops the way he deserves. They said that he has done too much for the country for them not to. They made us change dates to fit the federal governments schedule. But they didn’t do as promised, we aren’t mad, nor sad, just disappointed, they should be ashamed of themselves.
This sends a terrible message to our youth that are striving to do great things for Nigeria. The good thing is that We was raised not to ask for handouts. There will be no more postponements, today the funeral ceremonies began in Benin, the place he loved, where his career started. My sisters, brother and I held it down, with the help of a few others, and now we are putting our pops to rest. We don’t owe anyone shit and we can say they owe pops everything. No salt, it is not the people’s fault, we still love Nigeria as pops did…”
