According to Senator Ogba, when Enyeama decided suddenly to end his international romance with the Super Eagles on the account of the irreconcilable differences between him and Oliseh , he was not comfortable with Enyeama’s decision, so he had to call him on phone to rescind the decision in the interest of the nation, but the shot stopper was adamant .

I called Enyeama that Senate President wanted to speak to him on the matter , but he switched off and that was the end of the matter,” Senator Ogba said.
