The Minister of Youths and Sports, Solomon Dalung, on Thursday explained why the Federal Government have not been able to pay the entitlements of Nigeria’s female national team, the Super Falcons almost a week after winning the just-concluded CAF African Women Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
According to Dalung, who spoke with State House correspondents at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, the FG did not expect the Super Falcons to win the tournament hence the difficulties in paying the players’ entitlements.
The players had seized the trophy they won at the competition and said they would hold on to the trophy until the authorities concerned offset the N238.05m accumulated bonuses which they are being owed.
They had threatened that if President Muhammadu Buhari refused to address their grievances at the Federal Executive Council’s meeting on Wednesday, they would embark on protest on the streets of Abuja.
hmmm
But the minister said the situation could have been avoided if the Nigerian Football Federation had envisaged that the team would win and put in place the process of paying their entitlements.
He said, “Don’t forget that nobody even knew the team will emerge victorious.
“If we were confident they will emerge victorious, all the federation would have done is to plan for process of participation and entitlement.
“It is already established in sports tradition, when you win this is what you are entitled to.

“The situation is highly unfortunate and I don’t like it. These girls have given confidence to women who want to embrace sports, so this will go a long way in killing this laudable achievement. It is unfortunate but we will make sure the right thing is done.”
Since the Minister made the comment, Nigerians on Twitter have been reacting in no friendly manner.
