Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi has said that he has not agreed on any contract with the Nigeria Football Federation. Keshi’s position was made by his brother and aide Emmanuel Ado through a statement issued on Wednesday.

He insisted that there was only a draft contract from the NFA and that both parties were to start negotiations on Wednesday contrary to picture painted by the NFF on Tuesday. The NFF members had said that they had finalised the fresh contract with Keshi for him to continue as the Eagles coach.

Their communiqué read, “The board expects the new contract to be signed by the NFF and Keshi in a matter of days.”

But Ado said, “On behalf of Keshi, I want to categorically state that no agreement has been reached between my client and the NFF. Nothing has been agreed. Statements credited to Inyama that arrangements have been finalised for him to sign a new contract are misleading.

“We have the draft contract from the federation and we expect to enter into negotiations today Aug. 13.

“I want to state that contracts are not a ‘take it or leave it’ thing. It is not a master-servant relationship.”

Keshi has asked for N15m per month salary while the NFF members want him to continue on the N5m he earned in the last two years during his first tenure which ended with the 2014 World Cup.

Amalaha stripped of gold

Nigeria teenager Chika Amalaha has been stripped of her Commonwealth Games weightlifting gold medal after failing a doping test, the Commonwealth Games Federation said on Friday, Reuters reports.

The 16-year-old, who won gold in the women’s women’s 53kg competition, provided positive ‘A’ and ‘B’ samples that contained prohibited diuretics and masking agents.

“The Commonwealth Games Federation has determined that Nigerian weightlifter, Chika Amalaha, has committed an anti-doping rule violation and has fully suspended her from the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow,” the CGF said in a statement.

“As a result, Amalaha has been disqualified from her event at the Games, with her result in the women’s weightlifting 53 kilogram competition nullified.”

Dika Toua from Papua New Guinea has been awarded the gold medal with Indian duo Santoshi Matsa and Swati Singh claiming silver and bronze.

Amalaha was Nigeria’s first gold medal winner in Glasgow, equalling the Games snatch record of 82kg with her first attempt before lifting 85kg on her third.

Her combined total of 196kg was also a Games record, and according to the International Weightlifting Federation she was the youngest women to win a weightlifting title in Games history.
