Football Legend Adokiye Amiesimaka Snubs Sports Minister’s Appointment, Says ‘Its A Waste Of Time And Public Funds’

Nigerian football legend, Adokiye Amiesimaka, has rejected an appointment from the Honourable Minister of Sports, Sunday Dare, as a member of a committee formed to produce a 10-year football development master plan for the country.

The ex-Super Eagles winger described the appointment as “a waste of time and public funds”.

The former chairman of Sharks Football Club, in a letter said that he had been in similar committees in the past but their recommendations were never implemented.

The letter read, “I refer to your letter FMYSD/FEAD/NFF/CORR/014/VOL IV of September 7, 2021, and state without equivocation that beyond cliches and perfunctory responses, but consistent with my natural disposition, I always feel honoured to be considered worthy to serve my beloved country in any capacity. Thank you, sir.

“Nevertheless, it is apposite to recall that carefully thought-through, reports on similar subject by other committees, some of which I was privileged to serve on, were received with high commendation by the authorities, only to gather dust.

“Regrettably, there is no indication whatsoever that things will be any different this time around. Accordingly, I respectfully decline your kind offer, as to do otherwise would amount to a waste of my time and public funds.”
