The Federal Government has promised to examine the problems delaying the payment of the allowances and bonuses of the victorious Super Falcons by the Nigerian Football Federation.
The victorious Super Falcons were reported to have embarked on a sit-in protest at an Abuja hotel over the non-payment of their allowances and bonuses.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed said, “The Minister of Youth and Sports raised the issue today at the council and it is being looked into.
“You see, I think over time, it has become tradition to reward victorious athletes or sports persons but I think this is caused by the biting economic situation. But I can assure you it is being looked into. And I am sure the Minister of Youths and Sports is handling the matter.’’
