Oyedele, a news maker and a professional in the practice doesn’t deserve such ill treatment from Iheanacho or any national team player.

While we urge the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to as a matter of urgency call the player to order, it is also not out place for the football house further educate the players on etIquette and relationship with the men of the fourth estate of realm and fans alike.

Such measures if put in place would prevent future occurrence.

The Super Eagles take a prime place in every Nigerian journalists’ hearts and treatment such as this can only discourage reporters from doing more and giving their best for the course of our darling national team.
