Samson Siasia was on Wednesday officially presented to the public as the new coach of the Super Eagles by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

The ceremony, which took place at the Press Centre of the Abuja National Stadium, had earlier been scheduled to take place on November 10 but had to be called at the last minute due to a nationwide strike by the country’s labour unions.

A new date for the unveiling could not be fixed earlier than now as the president of the NFF, Aminu Maigari travelled to South Africa, where he underwent corrective surgery on an injured knee.

December 1 was thereafter picked by the NFF as the new date for Siasia’s unveiling ceremony and Maigari, who only returned to the country over the weekend, was present at Wednesday’s ceremony.

“I must tell you that we picked the man that clearly demonstrated our vision, plan and target for the national team. We believe that he is capable and experienced enough to handle the national team and take us to the next level,” Maigari told reporters at the ceremony.
