Super Eagles legend vows to lead Nigeria in another protest due to political corruption.

Taribo West has alleged that some individuals running Nigerian football have siphoned and embezzled huge sums of money and he will lead a protest against them.

And this is coming in the wake of the EndSARS protests after youths across the country stormed the streets demanding an end to police brutality and calling for good governance. The 46-year-old who is now a pastor was a member of the Super Eagles squad between 1994 and 2005 and made 42 appearances. According to him, everything that is happening as a result of #EndSARS protests should also be taken to the football house.

He told Punch:

“We are going to protest against those that have hijacked our football system. Everything happening in the Nigerian system must also affect the football house. “People with integrity must run the football house because money that has been siphoned, embezzled & mismanaged can’t be quantified.

“Work of God is in my spirit, but football is in my blood. I’ll lead a protest against the mismanagement of funds in Nigerian football.”

According to the report on Daily Mail, PDC chairman Barry Hearn explained that he is waiting for more information from the UK government. ‘We are geared up for fans to come back. If they give me 1,000 I will be over the moon but we waiting on more information from the government and health authorities. ‘We have got the AJ fight coming up as well without a ticketing agency, but believe you me we are standing by and waiting to press a big red button on my desk.” Anthony Joshua’s last professional fight was against Andy Ruiz and the 31-year-old did well to beat the Mexican and collected his titles back
