According to him, any perceived “problem whether real or imagined” between them  would always be resolved amicably in the interest of the game and the country they both love.

“Keshi has always related well with Amaju as a brother and as Chairman of the Delta State Sports Commission before now. The chairman’s  passion and achievements over the years bear eloquent testimony  to what he is capable of replicating in his new job at the NFF. After the 2013 Nations Cup, Amaju was instrumental to Delta State Government hosting the team and the renaming of the Asaba township stadium after Stephen Keshi” said Ado

This is contrary to insinuations being made in some quarters, that Keshi and Amaju  can never work together. For the information of all, both men understand that in the interest of Nigerian football they must “work together” to move Nigerian football forward. ‘The lessons of the last few months is that united we win and divided we fail.”

“Allow me to state unequivocally that there will always be differences, but it is how these differences are managed that is critical. So moving forward I expect that the board, the media ,the fans and the coach would continue to rub minds on issues that will help our football, but once the coach takes a decision he should be supported”.
