AWCON Winners: Nigerias Super Falcons Protest at National Assembly

Members of the Nigeria female football national team, the Super-Falcons, have stormed the National Assembly, at the capital, Abuja protesting the non-payment of their allowances by the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF).
The team recently won the 10th edition of the African Women Championship held in Cameroon.

 Members of the Nigeria Super Falcons squad seized the trophy they won at the just concluded African Women Cup of Nations in Cameroon, saying they will not release it until the NFF pays them all outstanding bonuses and allowances.

They claimed the NFF is owing them a debt up to a whopping N238.05million,( over $7m) an amount that has accumulated over time.

Nigeria Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed in a response said that the biting economic situation in the country may have been responsible for the non payment of the allowances of Super Falcons’ players and officials.
