Wilson Oruma Offerred New Job, House By NFF President, Pinnick



It was reported few weeks ago that former Super Eagles midfielder, Wilson Oruma, suffered a relapse of the emotional disorder that bugged him 6-years ago after he was defrauded by a Pastor and some fake oil businessmen.

Oruma who captained the Golden Eaglets’ 1993 FIFA U-17 World Cup winning team, was reportedly lured into a fake oil business in December 2012 in which he invested a whopping sum of N1.2billion without proper consultation after retiring from football, and he consequently lost the investment.

According to a new report by Vanguard, the distressed former midfielder, has been offered a job as assistant coach in one of the national teams by the President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick who has picked all Oruma’s hospital bills and relocated him to a better equipped one.

"By next week, Oruma will move into my house before they finish furnishing the three bedroom flat where he would stay," the NFF President confirmed on Monday.

"His story is a pathetic one and we cannot allow him to die. I am rendering this help to him from one Warri man to another. We are Warri Ambassadors."

Pinnick said that the former Golden Eaglets’ 1993 FIFA U-17 World Cup winning captain was recovering well. "All we need to do is to show him love. I ate with him. He’s stable. The NFF will include him to play a role in our award ceremony coming up soon.

"Thereafter, we’ll include him in the U-20 national team. Come June, we’ll also include him in the contingent to Russia to cheer the Super Eagles. I’m still talking with some of the clubs he played for to allow him come and do a coaching course with them."
