Nigeria: Ochei Canvasses Support for Keshi

Speaker of the Delta State Legislature, Rt Hon (Engr) Victor Ochei has urged Nigerians to support the award winning Super Eagles manager, Stephen Keshi in his effort at ensuring that Nigeria qualifies for the FIFA World Cup in Brazil next year.

Hon Ochei, who is also the national patron of the Nigerian Wheelchair Basketball Federation, made this call in his reaction to Nigeria's emergence as champions at the just concluded 29th AFCON soccer championship in South Africa.

The legislator submitted that, there could be no auspicious time to support the Super Eagles than now, adding that his call for the necessary support emanates from the need to ensure that Nigeria maintains a respectable presence on the global soccer radar. This, he said will propel the technical crew.
