President Muhamadu Buhari has approved the release of bonuses and allowances of all Super Eagles players in Egypt for AFCON 2019.
This comes after the Super Eagles Players allegedly boycotted trainings and press conferences on Tuesday June 25th 2019 in protest of unpaid allowances and bonuses.
While confirming the news, Seyi Akinwunmi who is the vice president of the Nigeria Football Federation made it clear that the football house received part of the money on Tuesday, June 25.
He also confirmed that the Super Eagles were only being owed their allowances for their victory over Burundi.
“We want to specially thank His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari for his keen interest in resolving this matter quickly, which has enabled us to receive part of the money in record time.
”We have immediately started the process of converting the money to American Dollars at the Central Bank in order to pay the players the bonus for the win over Burundi three days ago as well as plan for subsequent games,” Akinwunmi said.
