NFF Speaks on Ban on Victor Osimhen over Finidi George Controversy

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has denied reports that Super Eagles’ forward, Victor Osimhen, has been banned from the national team due to his recent social media outburst.

NFF General Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi, made the clarification in a statement on Wednesday.

He expressed surprise at the reports, stating that no official communication has been made regarding a ban on Osimhen.

“There was no official communication from the NFF, yet some persons have gone to town to talk about a ban on Osimhen from the National Team. This is not good at all,” Sanusi said.

The statement added, “The NFF hereby implores the media to join hands with the body to positively resolve issues and then focus on the big picture all the time, rather than needlessly escalate certain matters.

“There was no official communication from the NFF, yet some persons have gone to town to talk about a ban on Osimhen from the National Team. This is not good at all.

“Our focus currently is to resolve all matters around the Super Eagles and be able to look ahead with confidence to the 2025 AFCON qualifiers and the remaining six matches of the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualification series.

“This is not the time to spread falsehood and foul the public space the more.”
