SAN FRANCISCO, February 12, (THEWILL) – Stephen Keshi, Head Coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria, Tuesday withdrew his resignation from the Nigeria Football Federation after the intervention of the nation's sports minister, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi.

Keshi revealed this in a press statement which reads;

“My attention has been drawn to reports in the media that I have resigned my appointment as the Head Coach of Super Eagles of Nigeria.

“While I have had cause to express my displeasure over some issues that happened in the course of our participation in the AFCON 2013, which my team won by the grace of God, especially concerning my relationship with the Nigerian Football Federation, I have since had opportunity to discuss the various issues with all concerned. I am therefore pleased to say that I have reconsidered my position and have decided to continue with my job.

“I want to thank the Honourable Minister of Sports, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, for his swift and kind intervention.”
