Stephen Keshi Laid To Rest While Son Expresses Disappointment With Federal Govt.

Former Nigeria Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi's funeral took place at his hometown Ilah in Delta state. May his soul rest in peace. The funeral did not come without a controversy between the family and the federal government. The late coach son, Stephen Keshi Junior, wrote on his Instagram page yesterday to express his disappointment at the Federal government's unfulfilled promises to honor his father. More pictures after cut...................

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 too 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 shit 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 said
