The Nigerian Football Federation has released a statement condoling former Super Eagles head coach Stephen Keshi over the sudden demise of his wife. Kate Keshi, 54, to whom he had been married to for 32 years died on Wednesday night in the US after a long-term illness.
“This is devastating. To lose a spouse is the equivalent of a tragedy. I pray that Almighty God will give you and the children the fortitude to bear this huge loss. Keshi is a Nigerian hero and we mourn deeply with him at this time. This has come like a big blow, but we pray that he receives divine strength to cope with the situation, and we also pray that the Almighty God will grant the departed eternal rest.” NFF chairman Amaju Pinnick said
