"It has always being my pleasure to play and win for the team," he wrote. "I am always proud of my successful years in the team and I am pleased to call it off at this point in order to avoid insults."
Oliseh was reportedly considering leaving out Emenike for next month's FIFA World Cup™ qualifier against Swaziland because he has not scored at international level for two years. The former Spartak Moscow player, at Al Ain on loan from Turkish side Fenerbahce, has, however, featured in the first four matches since Oliseh took over from Steven Keshi.
Emenike made his international debut in a friendly against Sierra Leone in Lagos in February 2011 and was top scorer at the Africa Cup of Nations 2013, which Nigeria won.
But he soon after hit a bad patch and his last goal for Nigeria was in October 2013, in a World Cup qualifying play-off against Ethiopia.
In all, he made 37 appearance for the Super Eagles, scoring nine times.
