The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) are making arrangements to dispatch a five-man delegation to London to visit Super Eagles goalkeeper, Carl Ikeme.
Ikeme who has been diagnosed with acute leukemia, a development that instantly landed him in a London hospital where he is currently receiving treatment.
A member of the technical committee of the NFF, Etubom Paul Bassey said that the committee is putting arrangements in gear while awaiting the return of the NFF president, Amaju Pinnick who is said to have travelled outside the country.
He also reassured Nigerians that the exit of the goal keeper from the 2018 Russia World Cup qualifier against the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon will not affect the team’s performance.
Mr Bassey said “We are making concrete arrangements to pay a solidarity visit to our goalkeeper, Carl Ikeme whom you know is down and admitted in a London hospital.
“All we are waiting is for the NFF president to return and give the necessary approval.”
