I want to thank the Chairman, the members of the board, and the supporters for even thinking about me. On my own part, I will be here to just work and do the job. It's never going to be easy but I'm here to work and make the team win."

The 50-year-old made 62 appearances for the Nigeria Super Eagles in 15 years of his spell with the National Team. He was part of the 1994 victorious Super Eagles that conquer Africa. He was also with the team at the 1994 FIFA World Cup and the 1998 edition.
