Since our father died, nobody has spoken to us about how he died, and we have not even seen his corpse. Yet, someone is fixing a date for his burial!” he explained.  But nevertheless he did not hesitate to express his appreciation to the Federal Government, the National Assembly, the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports, the Nigeria Football Federation, the governments of Edo and Delta states, ex-internationals and countless corporate bodies and individuals who had in one way or the other spoken kindly of his father since his death.
“I cannot thank everyone enough. We have only heard good and great words about our father since his death. I am going to Benin City now. The family will sit down and come up with a date for the funeral, but we also appreciate that he was a national figure and will harmonize our plans with that of the Government and the NFF.
“Our father was a loving family man and we will miss him greatly. Our joy is that he left a worthy legacy for Nigeria football and for his family.” he disclosed. as he is already in the country to make necessary arrangements,  keshi jnr who is an events producer in Atlanta flew into the country with his sister ifeyinwa and the husband. On Tuesday night.
