AFCON: Nigeria Falcons to receive $25k Friday
In what is a sharp contrast to how the Lionesses of Cameroon were treated, the Falcons who are reportedly entitled to $25,000 each are yet to get paid and this has led to the team refusing to leave the hotel where they are lodged.
The players on hearing that the president will visit the National Assembly to present the estimates of the 2017 budget to lawmakers, took their protest there with placards reading:
“We are your children, pity us”; “Let us respect women”; “female football deserves respect.” in a bid for get his attention and possibly put an end to their plight.
The girls, however, returned to their hotel after the Chief of Staff to President Buhari, Abba Kyari, while addressing them promised to pay up what they are owed in two days.
