Eagles AFCON Monies: NFF applauds CBN for working assiduously on payment process

Posted : 30 January 2024

The Nigeria Football Federation has denounced insinuations in some quarters that the Central Bank of Nigeria is causing delays in the payment of match bonuses and allowances owed to the Super Eagles at the ongoing 34th Africa Cup of Nations finals in Cote d'Ivoire.

"That is sheer idle talk without substance. The NFF is grateful to the CBN for the way they have continued to expedite action on payment requests that we have sent to them regarding this competition. It is unfair for anyone to concoct lies against the institution for whatever reasons.

“We have not experienced any delays or complications in processes at the CBN this time, and we give kudos to them for their diligence and great sense of duty,” NFF General Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi, said on Tuesday.

Sanusi also praised the Minister of Sports Development, Senator John Owan Enoh, for the commendable role he continues to play in ensuring the welfare of Nigerian footballers, and athletes in general, is paramount.

“We cannot thank the Honourable Minister enough for the noble and positive role that he continues to play in the development of Nigeria sports generally, especially his commitment to the welfare of the main actors in the game.

He has led from the front in all our pursuits, and we give him kudos for his efforts.”

Based on a prior agreement with the NFF, the Super Eagles will be paid a qualification bonus for reaching the knockout rounds, and not the match-by-match payment option.

"Their match bonuses are also graduated as they progress in the tournament."
