Jennifer Keshi takes charge of burial plans


AFTER a minor controversy over plans for the
burial of late soccer legend and coach,
Stephen Okechukwu Chinedu Keshi, the first
daughter, Jennifer Keshi has arrived the
country from the United States to coordinate
the burial plans with members of the larger
Keshi family.
With the Federal Government through the
Sports Ministry showing a lot of interest in
the burial plans, family sources say the only
controversy at the moment is whether Keshi
should be buried in Benin City his adopted
home or Illah, his ancestral stead. “That will
easily be settled”, the source declared. There
is also a tentative burial date of July 28, that
has not been totally agreed upon.
There are already indications that many
state governments, the NFF on both sides
and the Federal Government have indicated
interest in the burial schedule of the man
fondly styled ‘the Big Boss’. The Keshi family
has already given an assurance that the
burial will be all-inclusive as Keshi during his
life time had no foe.
