As the senior national women’s team the Super Falcons continue their sit-in protest in Abuja over unpaid bonuses and allowances after their 8th AWCON triumph in Cameroon, the Minister of Youth and Sports, Solomon Dalung, NFF President, Amaju Pinnick and the chairman of the League Management Company of Nigeria (LMC), Mallam Shehu Dikko are off to London to sign a new kit sponsorship deal for the Super Eagles with sports wear manufacturing giants, Nike.
Although the NFF had before the tournament pledged to pay the Falcons bonuses and allowances for qualifying, the team played and won without bonuses and allowances paid. They have since embarked on a protest following their return from Cameroon.
One of the players told BBC Sport that their sit-in at the Agura hotel in the capital will not end until they receive all bonuses, which totals US$23,650 (about N11.5m) per player.
“We are not leaving this hotel and we have not been told exactly when we are going to get paid,” the player, who insisted on anonymity, told BBC Sport.
“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.”
