This follows a meeting of the Executive Committee of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) last Tuesday that unanimously adopted the recommendation of its Technical and Development Committee on the choice of Oliseh.
The 40-year old will replace his former playing mate, Stephen Keshi, whose appointment was terminated by the NFF two weeks ago.
His first task will be an away clash with Tanzania in the Africa Cup of Nations Gabon 2017 in September in Dar es Salaam. The Super Eagles beat neighbours Chad 2-0 in the opening game last June.
Since hanging his boots in 2006, Oliseh’s only coaching job was in charge of Belgian lower division side, Royal Cercle Sportif Verviétois between 2008 and 2009.
He becomes the third indigenous trainer to handle the Super Eagles in recent times after Samson Siasia and Keshi.
NFF president, Amaju Pinnick, as well as other members of the NFF Executive Committee and Management will preside over the presentation billed for the Media Centre of the National Stadium, Abuja.
