NFF has explains reason behind their absent at the burial Isaac Promise.
According to the report made available by NFF official
“The NFF has been in regular contact with and has offered support to late Isaac Promise’s wife and children. When the player died in the United States of America, the NFF immediately contacted the club and we were assured of the responsibilities of the club, which included flying his remains to Nigeria.
“However, some of his siblings outrightly expected the NFF to foot the entire bill of his burial, which we told them was not possible. The NFF offered to foot part of the bill for the burial but from that moment, they were not happy with the Federation.”
“We know what we have done and still ready to do for the immediate family without joining in the debate going on in sections of the media."
“The NFF President has approved a sum of money to be paid to the immediate family and that money will be sent to his wife in the next few days,” the statement added.
Promise captained the Flying Eagles to the final of 2005 FIFA U20 World Cup in the Netherlands and to the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing."
