Let's not ignore this thread, folks!

Let's draw the NFF's attention to this going man. Let's draw everyone's attention to him, before we start eulogising him when he's no more.

NFF to assist former Golden Eaglets star Daniel Joshua
14 December 2015, 21:38

Abuja - Disabled Nigeria U-17 World cup winner Daniel Joshua may be granted assistance by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to help him walk again.

Joshua who won the U-17 world cup with Nigeria in 2007 was involved in a ghastly car accident on his way to the Nigeria U-20 camp in 2008 and has stayed bed ridden since then.

However help appears to be coming his way as latest indications suggest his years of neglect from various sports administrators and NFF president will in the coming days become history.

The NFF under President Amaju Pinnick are set to help him by giving him a job with the federation but at the moment a role for him is yet to be fashioned out.

Indications are he might be the federations’ goodwill ambassador on monthly stipends or act as a scout for the junior teams of Nigeria as he can still move about in his wheel chair.

A defender by trade before the accident, he represented Niger Tornadoes locally and was operated upon in Germany after the car accident to cure a defect in his nerve which was wrongly stitched with his skin during first aid treatment.

Although that anomaly has been corrected, he is currently undergoing physiotherapist rehabilitation to help reawaken the nerve after the lull.

It is a sad. But I don't think the NFF have the resources to pay everyone medical bills if they are not on National assignment. I don't think the NFF should shoulder all of the responsibility. Every well off Nigerian that have the means should intervene.
Winners do it the right way.

And exactly what part of "in a ghastly car accident on his way to a NATIONAL ASSIGNMENT (the U20 FE camp)" confused you?! :blink:

He says that we are currently "brainwashed" into believing that the Premier League is the best competition in the world, and that we are now a long way off dominating the Champions League again.

When you read what Ohenhen writes, you wonder how someone can write nonsense consistently almost all the time. Its unbelievable.

Niger Tornadoes Football Club of Minna have paid a visit to the family home of its former player and ex Junior International Joshua Daniel who resides in Kaduna.

The versatile defender who often played on the right full back position and served the Ikon Allah Boys meritoriously before the infamous and career ending accident, while traveling to Kaduna for an holiday in 2009.

In a press statement, Media Officee of the club, Mr Alhassan Kutigi noted that Joshua Daniel was part of the late Yemi Tella’s victorious U-17 Golden Eaglets team that won the 2007 FIFA World Cup in South Korea and had since resigned to fate for survival since losing his means of livelihood through football.

Delivering his speech, the leader of the delegation and Team Manager of Niger Tornadoes FC, Aliyu Mohammad said, “We now play our home matches in Kaduna that is why we have decided to come, not just as a team, but family.

Joshua was our player when the accident happened and there is no way your contributions as a player of Niger Tornadoes can be forgotten. This is not a time for long speech, but know that, we still appreciate your contributions as a player who played with his heart and always gave 100% in every match. Please accept this token from us as a team and family.

Johuas’ Mother, Mrs Asabe Daniel who was filled with tears, bears her mind on the surprise visit. “My tears are tears of joy, because my joy knows no bounds. I thought Niger Tornadoes had forgotten my son, but today, I know I was wrong. Today people will know that Joshua is not forgotten. With all you’ve brought for us and Joshua, we are grateful on behalf of my family. God will reward you for this kindness you’ve shown Joshua. May such misfortune not happen to you and members of your family. My sincere appreciation goes Coach Abubakar Bala and Team Manager, the players and others.

The player (Joshua Daniel) overjoyed, summed up his feelings thus; “I don’t know what to say because this is a very big surprise to me. Thank you very much. God will replenish you in a million fold and grant your heart desires. I’m very grateful.

Tornadoes players were visibly dejected, eyes filled with tears, seeing a senior colleague who had distinguished himself in the service of the club and nation.
