Super Falcons Refuses To Relenquish AWCON Trophy

All is not yet right at the Super Falcons’ camp despite the Federal Government’s order that the players and their officials, who recently won the African Women Nations Cup in Cameroon, be paid their emoluments immediately.

Florence Omagbemi’s squad embarked on a sit-in protest at their Abuja hotel after winning the competition, as they demanded
for their outstanding bonuses and allowances, insisting that they would neither leave the hotel nor hand over the trophy to government if their entitlements dating back to eight match bonuses and other allowances were not settled.

They marched to the National Assembly on the 10th day of the protest, an action which eventually pushed President Muhammadu Buhari to order for funds to be released to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF). Although some of the players have confirmed payments , others are yet to receive credit alerts.

Apart from the AWCON match bonuses, the players are also demanding for camp allowances, which they should have gotten before the tournament.

An official of the team, who pleaded anonymity, told AfricanFootball: “some of the players have received their alerts, but they have refused to leave the hotel until everyone got his money to the last kobo. They don’t trust anybody any more.” She added that the players “thank the government, the fans and media for their roles in making sure we got our hard-earned dues. “Government has done its part, it is up to the other parties to carry out the order.
