"Players will come out to tell you that they were asked to pay money before playing for the Nation," Udeme George began. 

"We have heard so many stories. They don't say it immediately, they don't have evidences. They are not willing to come out to tell the press or public at the right time to tell their stories."

"Obasi is the latest of all of them. How can you wait since 2014 to tell your story? That's by the way actually, it's better late than never. 

"Obasi must be man enough to come out and tell the whole world who asked him for money. We won't make do with stories like, this one asked me to pay money, I didn't want to pay, how can I pay money because I served the country?

"No, we must fish out these guys. We must make the world know that these guys are the reason why our football isn't moving forward because they put money ahead of talent. If you don't have money they push you out, even with your talents. They bring in guys who have money and do not have talents, and we go to the world scene to mess up."

The award winning Udeme George further threw a challenge to Chinedu Obasi Ogbuke: "Obasi, am challenging you to give us names of those who were involved in this scandal asking for money in the next 24 hours."

"We won't just make do with these stories, for now it is an allegation, it is a story. Anyone can come out to tell stories. Until you give us names, we would start taking you serious. You can't keep on rubbing the names of our coaches in the mud. Be man enough to mention the names of those involved in this scandal. It is very simple," he concluded.

It would be recalled that Obasi learnt the ropes with John Obi Mikel and Ezekiel Bala at Lyn Oslo.
