The President was believed to have given the orders during his meeting with the bosses (Chris Giwa and Amaju Pinnick) of the two warring factions of the Nigeria Football Federation at the Aso Rock Villa yesterday where he asked them to resolve all issues between them by next week and should be sent a report.

Jonathan at the said meeting also asked Chris Giwa to vacate the court case in Jos, Plateau State, and ordered the immediate return of Keshi who has endeared the President since his nations cup win last year.

It remains to be seen whether the former Togolese manager would accept the invitation to go back to a job he said had given him serious headaches in the last few months. The gaffer threw a sharp parting shot by calling Nigeria “an unserious football country” after his departure earlier this month.

The Super Eagles will face Congo and South Africa next month in the remaining matches that would determine whether the reigning African champions would qualify for next year’s tournament.
