Coach Amodu let all Nigerians down. He did not believe that as a Nigerian he owned the Super Eagles. He thought the NFF and the presidential Task Force did. He did not understand that God was giving him a second chance to prove himself. He did not have the vision that he might be the only African coach at the World Cup 2010. Instead of him to take hungry local players and able professionals to seal his opportunity, he took only professional players who were either injured or unfit due to recovery to the Nations Cup. He even confessed that he made an agreement with the professional players that their place in the Nations Cup was assured without first checking their fitness level. Now Black Africans faces a reality yet again of having a FIFA World Cup, the most watched event in the world, with little or no African referees, minimal African local players, and now without an African coach on African soil in South Africa. What a shame!!!! How do we expect the world to respect us? I plead with the NFF to have enough foresight, consciousness, and vision to hire a Nigerian coach (Siasia, Keshi or Oliseh) or a Black African Coach for the World Cup because I am sick and tired of this global disgrace. God did not make me to be a symbol of insufficiency, incapability, and second class. An African coach must be present in this World Cup and every World Cup because you are the one that must push yourself to be successful. Let our children see Nigerian and African coaches in the World Cup and dream of surpassing them. This is how we prosper as a people.
Since Nigeria and the Super Eagles belong to all Nigerians, we must plan on how to capitalize on them economically without relying on the Nigerian government and economy directly. This means each one of us must figure out a way to derive revenue from Nigeria. While the NFF is giving ADIDAS and NIKE full contract to make our jersey (at least in the past), we have to learn to capitalize on Football, the World Cup, Summer Olympics, and the African Nations Cup for ourselves. There are billions of people out there looking for Super Eagles products. If you do not produce it, White people and Arabs will. Let us try to use world events relating to Nigeria to create jobs and income away from the Nigerian economy. This will only happen if you believe that you own Nigeria and not the Kaduna Mafia. Without ownership there is no money. You need money to have a voice. Your voice must be independent of the Nigerian economy and self driven. When many of us have a voice, we can bring change. When you bring change, you answer to no one nor owe anybody. Make use of the internet and sell your God given talent. Never be afraid of what people may say or think because you own Nigeria and can do whatever with it as long as it brings revenue and honor to self and country. Use the talent God has given you to create things with your hands and head, and use the internet to market it to strangers in distant lands. Remember, if all the revenue you get is from word of mouth and people you know, then you are not maximizing your potentials fully. The main aim of this idea is to keep us prepared to take over Nigeria when these incompetent leaders pass away instead of their children, who will do nothing but recycle corruption. God luck and make Nigeria your own to keep.
