The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Technical Commitee Chairman, Barrister Chris Green, has issued a notice to Nigerian former international, Austin Okocha, to attend the committee's meeting next week or cease to be a member.

Okocha is among the people appointed by the Alhaji Aminu Maigari NFF board as members of the technical committee but the Super Eagles' ex-midfielder, who was conspicuously absent at the committee's inauguration has consistently stayed away from its meetings without explanation.

Apparently dissatisfied with the continuous absence of Okocha from the committee's meetings, the Rivers State former commissioner for sports, said that Bolton's former player's absence will no longer be tolerated and that if he fails to attend its meeting next week he should consider himself no more a member of the committee.

'Okocha has not attended any of our meetings and he has not given any reason, even at the day of inauguration, he was not there, so how will we continue to see him as our member. 'We will be holding our meeting next week and if he does not attend the meeting he should consider himself out of the committee.'

Green equally took time too to debunk the insinuation that the committee has narrowed down its choice of assistants to the quartet of Monday Odigie, Emmanuel Amuneke, Emeka Ezeugo and Peter Rufai.

'We have not shortlisted anybody. In fact, there is no list, it is mere speculation. We will not do anything in a hurry, we are meeting next week, we will mention it but nobody, no name is before us at the moment.
