Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed has 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.


The Minister told State House correspondents that the matter was deliberated upon in the course of Wednesday’s Federal Executive Council meeting.

He said, “The Minister of Youth and Sports raised the issue today at the council and it is being looked into.

“You see, I think over time, it has become tradition to reward victorious athletes or sports persons but I think this is caused by the biting economic situation.

“But I can assure you it is being looked into.

“And I am sure the Minister of Youths and Sports is handling the matter.’’

One of the Super Falcons players was quoted in the social media as saying, “We are tired of the lies and false promises of the NFF.

“They told us we would be paid before the tournament in Cameroon, but that never happened.”

  4. With all due respect, I think everyone in this present administration is sick. From the head down to the least member of the cabinet.
    The Sport minister needs special medical attention. He must be an autistic patient because of the way he talks.
