Mikel Obi Has Not Spoken To Me For Years - Father

Michael Obi, father of Super Eagles captain, Mikel Obi has revealed the relationship between him and his son.


PA Obi was Kidnapped in Enugu on the day Nigeria faced Argentina in a group stage match but days after he was rescued safe.


The 74-year-old stated that if not for his Kidnap during the World Cup in Russia, it would have been five years since he last spoke to Mikel.


He said in an interview with Daily Trust newspaper: “My relationship with Mikel is an issue, but we don’t know what to do. It’s over five years now without a phone call from him to me. But he communicates with his mother.


“There is nothing I have not done to fix it. God has told me that I should not feel hurt.


"When we start to talk about it, I say, ‘Well, as long as I see him on TV, doing great, no problem’.


“During the just-concluded World Cup, one or two days to one of their matches, we spoke.


"He called his mum, and she told me that Nchekwube (Mikel) was on the phone and I told him that God will see him through. I prayed for him. That’s it.


“When he first joined Chelsea, my people in Anambra were very happy that God has blessed their son, and when he came to Abuja, they prepared very well with the hope that he will come to our hometown.


"They even made some magazines. It was grand. But he didn’t come. It was a shameful thing to me, as a father.


“He once told his brother that sometimes he picks his phone to call me, but something tells him not to.


“Sometime last year, he was to bring his twins so that I could name them, he said he would. But he didn’t.His other colleagues called home, so I don’t understand.”
