The Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) on Friday said it has started paying the Super Falcons their allowances and bonuses.
The Federal Government had promised to make the money available to the NFF within 24 hours after the players protested non-payment of allowances.
“The bank accounts of the players and officials are being credited as we speak. They will all receive credit alerts of the monies due to them, as released by the Government, before the end of the day,” NFF’s Head of Women’s Football, Ruth David, told thenff.com.
The Federal Government also released
monies due to players and officials of the Super Eagles for the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying match against Algeria, played in Uyo last month.
The Falcons reportedly got N5,494,500 each, N600,000 less than what they were usually paid.
They also received the sum of N15,000 camp allowance and N20,000 transport allowance.
Head Coach Florence Omagbemi got a total of N11,014,000 while assistant coaches Ann Chiejine, Perpetua Nkwocha and Bala Mohammed, as well as the backroom staff were paid N8,274,250.
