Omojuwa.Com scooped from some of the players who revealed after receiving their bank alerts of 4.6 million naira that they are grateful to President Muhamadu Buhari for coming to their aid, but were disappointed for receiving far below what the NFF promised them before they left their Agura Hotel in Abuja last Friday.
“We were promised to be paid above five million naira by the NFF, but were surprised to receive an alert of just above four million naira this morning. We are grateful but still demand our full payment by the NFF,” one of the players told Omojuwa.Com
She continued: “We also want to thank Nigerians, the media and everyone that stood by the truth and supported us all through; we are more than grateful to them. We are also asking the NFF to pay up our bonuses for the qualification of the AWCON, some of the players that played the qualifiers didn’t make it to Cameroun because of injury and they also deserve to be paid allowances and bonuses for qualification.”
However, Falconets players who represented Nigeria at the lastest FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup held in Papua New Guinea have also decided to embark on their proposed protest in Abuja on Tuesday (tomorrow) if they don’t receive any bank alerts on Monday (today) as promised by the NFF.
According to the players, a board member of the NFF last Friday pleaded with them not to go on protest as he promised they will receive bank alerts the same day as the Falcons, but as of this morning, Omojuwa.Com learnt none of them have received alerts, which might necessitate the Falconets players to embark on their planned protest on Tuesday.
