Funds Crisis Rocks Amaju Pinic, NFF



It appears that there is a crisis of fund rocking the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF).

Days back, report of how the Super Falcon protested against the NFF for not paying their allowance and their participation fee for the female world cup was all over the media.

The female national football team protested after they were knocked out of the ongoing 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France by Germany.

Yesterday, their male counterparts, Super Eagles were reported to be on strike in Egypt over unpaid allowances.

BBC Sports Journalist, Sulaimon Folarin, reported that the footballers who are participating in the Egypt-hosted AFCON 2019, refused to train on Tuesday, June 25th over unpaid allowances.

The bonuses for the team’s 1-0 win over Burundi said to be $10, 000 per player is yet to be paid.

NFF President, Amju Pinnick, has however told newsmen in Egypt that the issue on ground is not the unavailability of funds, as they have the Naira value of the bonuses to pay. According to him, the players have refused to accept their bonus in Naira because the official conversion rate to Dollar is lower than the open market rate, which means the players will lose money.

The possibility that the players will step out for their next match Guinea and their level of commitment is now an issue to worry about.
