Super Falcons Yet To Be Paid By NFF After Winning The Women’s Africa Cup Of Nations For An Eighth Time

Nigeria’s women’s team, The Super Falcons, are protesting the non payment of their allowances and bonuses for winning the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations.

The team won the African title for the eighth time on Saturday  but sadly Nigeria Football Federation has not paid them for their success.

One of the players who insisted on anonymity told BBC Sport that they will continue their sit-in which started on Tuesday at the Agura hotel in Abuja and will not end until they receive all bonuses, which totals US$23,650 per player.

“We are not leaving this hotel and we have not been told exactly when we are going to get paid, The plan is to stay here until we all receive the money because the moment we leave there will be no opportunity to get it again. The only thing we understand right now is for them to pay and stop making promises. We are tired of the lies and false promises from the NFF, They told us we would be paid before the tournament in Cameroon, but that never happened.

“We continued playing and now we are owed additional allowances and bonuses for winning the competition itself.

“We have made it clear to the NFF president and general secretary that we are going nowhere until all our monies from the qualifying and the competition in Cameroon have been paid.”

Another player told the BBC that their Coach has not been paid for six months

    I support them, Stay at the hotel, keep the cup, this NFF are useless. Amaju Pinnick was busy throwing a bash for his wife’s birthday, yet he said NFF had no money, he receives his monthly salary so do the other thieves residing at the glass house, yet they can’t pay the women and men who play for the nation. Falconets went to the wc and returned, got only 10,000 naira, what rubbish is that? Ladies protest.
