Stephen Keshi’s children at his burial yesterday
Stephen Keshi’s children at his burial yesterday

The son of the former Nigerian National team coach, Stephen Keshi who was laid to rest recently has accused the President, Muhammadu Buhari of neglecting his family adding that such action does not strengthen patriotism among citizens of the country

He wrote:

“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 to 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 poo and we can say they owe pops everything. No salt, it is not the people’s fault, we still love Nigeria as pops did”.

He added: “Finally pops has been laid to rest. The people of Africa has gained an angel. His loyalty and service has not gone unnoticed, the people of Africa thank you for your support, your prayers were felt. 7/29/2016′.

I think we should learn to appreciate/honour our legends. It will make people more patriotic”
