It is so sad that those put at the helms of affairs in Nigeria believes that looting, fighting and dragging themselves to court is the best way to enrich themselves without making an 80% impact in the society and in the lives of many.

In other sporting countries, ex-internationals are given various positions in sports since they understand the game better and they are able to use their jobs to keep body and soul together but in Nigeria, it is use and dump.

Many great talents have either faded away and died and have been forgotten but for ex-player, Kelechi Emeteole, his story would have been sad if not for quick intervention from well-meaning Nigerians.

The news of Kelechi Emeteole, broke recently after he was diagnosed with cancer and needed the sum of N2.5 Million for treatment.

Former Super Eagles Goal keeper at Atlanta 1996, Dosu Joseph, had to take up the responsibility of making a public plea of N1 thousand each from Nigerians to save his life.

According to Dosu, “Help a living legend, Ex Nigeria International, Kelechi Emeteole, Is down with cancer, he need just 2.5Million, 1k is not too much, pay into his account, Kelechi Emeteole, UBA, 1007868369. God bless you as you save a life, you can get him on this numbers. 08036410314/08037892942.”

Hmm, well, Super Eagles Defender, Kenneth Omeruo, has donated the sum of N2million as contribution from his foundation to Former Nigeria International and coach, Kelechi Emeteole.
