A small group had been working on the code of conduct and I am happy to say that it is now ready for implementation,” Pinnick is quited to say by the NFF website.

This will spell out how players and officials must conduct themselves while in any of the national camps, and minimize the probability of misunderstanding between coaches and players.

The recent happening in the camp of the Super Eagles in Belgium was unwarranted but I am happy we have been able to put that behind us.

Pinnick insisted that with regards to the recent misunderstanding, the code of conduct is certain to restrict the use of social media by players to air situation in the national camp.

No player launches his career through the social media. When players are at their clubs, they don’t broadcast camp situation on twitter, facebook or instagram. The same restraint and discipline must be observed in the national camp.”
