It is another case of late Payment or no payment by the NFF as top Nigerian Coaches who have been working to earn CAF 'A' licenses were unable to sit for a final examination on Thursday in Abuja after the CAF instructors agreed to go on a pay-strike in protest of non-payment of allowances.
A requirement by CAF as only ‘A’ license holders are required to handle proceedings in CAF competitions – CAF Confederations Cup and CAF Champions League, the A license course was to have ended on Saturday but the coaches were shocked when they were told the examination had been postponed.
The course which includes some of Nigeria's finest coaches, Salisu Yusuf, Samson Siasia, Ladan Bosso, Gbenga Ogunbote etc were left without any reason as to why the exam was postponed.
According to Africanfootball.com, the instructors, which include Adegboye Onigbinde, James Peters, and Kashimawo Laloko, have not been paid and would prefer to be paid before the program rounded up and as such decided to postpone the examination.
It is also being revealed that about 250,000 and 270,000 was collected from the coaches attending the courses and payments made directly into the NFF's bank account.
If things do work out well, it is expected that the coaches should be able to sit for the examination on Saturday.
