NFF Pays Super Falcons Part Of 2016 Outstanding Bonus
About two years since they played out a draw against Senegal in Dakar during a 2016 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier, members of the Super Falcons team are just getting part of their bonuses.
The team, coached by Florence Omagbemi, has since gone ahead to win the Africa Women’s Cup of Nations.
18 players and 10 officials received their bonuses which amounted to about N25 million.
Each of the players received $2,000 while their officials were paid $3,000 each.
Head coach Florence Omagbemi got $4,000 for the draw against their Senegalese counterparts in Dakar about two years ago.
In all about $66,000 was paid.
“What we got was $1,500 bonus for the draw and five days daily allowances of $500 each. We are still expecting the bonus for the victory against Senegal in the return leg in local currency. We thank God that the NFF kept to their promise to offset all they owe us,” the Falcons player, who is based abroad, confided in Complete Sports.
The players who received alerts include: Ugo Njoku, Ohale Osinachi, Ibubeleya Whyte, Chikelu Rita, Edoho Blessing, Ngozi Okobi, Desire Oparanozie, Evelyn Nwabuoku and Osas Igbinosa among others while the officials included Ann Chiejine, Perpetua Nkwocha, Faith Anuge, Ejiro Babafemi and Bilikisu Sulola.
Dear NFF, why publish their names in this era of kidnapping?
