Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has expressed grief over the death of a former boss of the Super Eagles, Coach Amodu Shuaibu, saying it is yet another colossal national loss.

Saraki, in a statement by his Special Adviser, Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, commiserated with the immediate family of the late Technical Director of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) over the unfortunate incident that happened when he did not wake up from his sleep in his Benin City base in Edo State this morning.

He described the incident as particularly sad coming barely 72 hours after the country lost another national sports hero, Coach Stephen Keshi.

Saraki said the deceased “contributed immensely to the development of football in the country and the greater strides the nation has recorded so far in sports development.”

He charged the younger generation to use their lifetime to make meaningful contributions to national development adding that the ex-coach left indelible footprints on the sands of time.

The Senate President said the late coach would be remembered for his immense contributions to the growth of football in Nigeria and by extension the African continent.

While praying God to grant the departed soul a place in Aljannah Girdaus, he called on the immediate family, NFF and the sports community to take solace in the fact that the late Amodu lived his life in the service of the nation.
