Reactions As Pinnick Said He Sees Nothing Wrong With Super Eagles Traveling To Benin On Boat

The president of the Nigeria football federation, Amaju Pinnick has suggested the Super Eagles travel to Benin Republic for their next African cup nations qualifier via boat.

This statement came in defense of Gernot Rohr, who had initially stated said it's likely the Nigerian male team team travels by boat to avoid the bad roads linking Nigeria and the neighboring Benin Republic.

However, the NFF president feels there is nothing bad in exploring other forms of adventure but he later said they haven't come to the conclusion of how and where the team will pass to theur destination, which is Port Novo, Benin Republic.

Absolutely, Nothing is wrong. In fact, they should have trekked instead of wasting tax payers money traveling by boat, after all the Israelites trekked from Egypt to Israel via the Red Sea.

Politicians families use presidential jets, we have 11 of them sitting idly on the tarmac. Buhari will not release it because there are no fulani's or their numbers didn't outnumber southerners representing Nigeria. I wish cattles can play football.
