''It's a big surprise and shock to all of us to hear of his resignation'', Oliseh who is tinkering the home Eagles for the return leg match of the CHAN qualifier against Burkina Faso in Ouagadougou next week said. Oliseh had guided the Eagles to whip the Etalons of Burkina Faso 2-0 in the first leg played at Port Harcourt.

Insinuations that Oliseh might drop the player from the Eagles squad for next month's  World Cup qualifier against Swaziland because he has not scored for the Eagles for two years was dismissed by the coach.

''Eh, Come on! You know me better than that. There is no water to that story and it did not emanate from me. I've not spoken to anybody(Journalist) concerning the team. I was surprised when I read the story attributed to me. Immediately, I called him but he did not pick his call and the Team's scribe Dayo Enebi Acho also called him without success.

I'm shocked and surprised. We had no issues and he had played four times since I took over the team. He's a great player'', Oliseh noted.

He was not the only person shocked to hear about Emenike's resignation on instagram. NFF President Amaju said that he was ''utterly flabbergasted by the resignation of Emenike. ''We(NFF) have not been contacted officially but I'm shocked because Emenike has been a major factor of success for the team. Players have the right to quit but I think that they should do it in a civil manner.

Asked if it was not one resignation too many  since Oliseh took over the team, Amaju exonerated the coach. ''Oliseh did not speak to anybody concerning dropping any player. He understands the dynamics of coaching. This is one of the reasons why we have to implement the code of conduct. Things should be done the right way. But, we have absolute confidence in Oliseh. He is in charge and determines players to be invited'',
