After 3wks of african cup of nation,super eagles player IGIEBOR JONA unable to rejoin is spanish club


Three weeks after wining
the African Nations Cup
with the Super Eagles,
midfielder Nosa Igiebor is
unable to rejoin his
Spanish club, Real Betis. This is because the Spanish
Embassy in Lagos as
Thursday, was still playing
hide and seek with
regards to the issuance of
an entry visa to the player. Igbiebor
after the celebrations that greeted
the Super Eagles victory,
has been a regular visitor
to the Spanish Embassy in
Lagos, but on each
occasion, it was a story of “come today, come
tomorrow.” First, they told him that
there was a problem with
his work permit, then
again it was his birth
certificate and finally
there was no paper to process his application. The
player and his club have
been left frustrated to
the extent that Betis
considered sending officials
to Lagos during the week to sort out the matter. I
can not believe they are
doing this to me in my own
country. I’m desperate
and do not know what to
think. I want to go back, but they will not let me,”
said Nosa on Thursday. This is not the first time
the Spanish embassy will
be treating Nigerian sports
people with disdain. Last
July, the Nigeria World
Junior Athletics Championships delegation
were shabbily treated and
when the Embassy finally
decided to grant them
visas, the best athletes
were denied.
