The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) are no closer to appointing a substantive coach for the country's team, a top official has informed.
The Super Eagles have been without a permanent coach following Sunday Oliseh's resignation in February and they have had two interim coaches since then.
Samson Siasia took temporary charge when Oliseh resigned, and Salisu Yusuf was in charge for the two international friendlies against Mali and Luxembourg last month.
The NFF had announced plans to hire a coach shortly after Oliseh's resignation but that no decision has been reached over three months after.
"There's nothing on ground now regarding that (appointing a coach)," the official informed.
"We have looked at some names, but we're not close to announcing anyone of them."
When asked why they're taking so long in naming Oliseh's successor, the highly-placed official admitted they're not in a hurry, added to the fact that they've faced 'several challenges'.
"What's the rush? We don't have any meaningful game until October when the World Cup qualifiers start, so we're not in a hurry.
"There's been so many challenges ranging from finance and other matters, but we'll surely have a coach before the World Cup qualifiers start," he added.
