In a series of tweets, Wednesday, Minister of Youth Development, Mr. Solomon Dalung, apologised to Nigerians for the failure of the Super Eagles to qualify for the 2017 African Cup of Nations to be hosted by Gabon.
He noted that the country has no good reason for failure to qualify if plans had been properly put in place.
“After this abysmal performance at AFCON qualifiers it’s important we return to the drawing board to plan the future of football in Nigeria,” the minister twitted.
“Nigerians cannot accept any reason for failure from anybody so we either deliver or we give way to those who can deliver success.”
“I personally apologised to Nigerians for the inability of the Super Eagles to qualify for the campaign to AFCON. We must plan better again.”
“We have no good reason not to qualify if we had planned well and also organise ourselves rather it was crisis all the way rocking NFF,” the minister tweeted.
It would be recalled that following a 1:0 loss in the second leg of the AFCON qualifiers against the Pharaohs of Egypt, the Super Eagles effectively sealed their exit from the competition which holds next year in Gabon, having earlier, last Tuesday, in Kaduna, drawn the first leg 1:1.
