NFF Pays $2000 Each To Super Eagles Players For Chan Qualification

The victorious home–based senior national team, Super Eagles B got a shocking surprise from the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Sunday night with the approval of $1,000 bonus for their qualification for the 4th African Nations Championship.

The players had more reasons to smile after the leadership of the NFF approved that players and officials be paid extra amount of money as performance/qualification bonus

For the drawn game against Burkina Faso’s Etalons at the Stade August 4 on Sunday, which sent Nigeria into the draw for the Rwanda 2016 African Nations Championship, each player was entitled to the sum of $1,000 with each of the coaches earning more.

However, NFF second Vice President/LMC chairman, Shehu Dikko, who led the Nigeria delegation to Ouagadougou, announced to the group that NFF President Amaju Pinnick had directed that players and officials be paid the full bonus, with the other half serving as qualification bonus.

The joyous delegation returned to Nigeria at 1.15am on Monday, aboard the same ARIK Air Bombardier Jet that flew them from Port Harcourt to Ouagadougou on Friday night.
