The House Committee on Sports under the Chairmanship of Honourable Ekene Adams subjected the leadership of the Nigeria Football Federation to a series of questions and answer over the state of Nigeria Football particularly the none payment of the Super Falcon entitlements and the other Nationals teams allowances and bonuses.

This was at the occasion of the parley held between members of the committee on Sports and the officials of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF on Tuesday at the National Assembly complex.

The members of the committee took turn to fire questions at the NFF officials on even petitions that were written against them by many aggrieved Nigeria Football stakeholders.

However, answering some of the questions, the President of the Nigeria football Federation, Ibrahim Gusau did managed to provide some unsatisfactory explanations to why the National team players are been owed allowances and bonuses.

Gusau attributed their outright failure of the football house to pay their coaches and players to their inability to secure a standing sponsor, but however assured members of the house that they are actually working towards redressing the situation.

He said, “I want to assure Nigerians that very soon they will see a lot of changes in the development of football so that a lot of sponsors will come back to us. All these issues of not paying match bonuses and the rest of it is because of sponsorship. By the grace of God, everything will be resolved.”

Speaking specifically on the Super Falcon payment, Gusau said,

“By reasoned of their round of 16 at the FIFA women world cup the players will earn $ 60,000. dollars about ( #45.6million naira)each.

“I want to assure that the players and officials will be paid all their entitlement as soon as we receive the world cup money from FIFA” President Gusua confirmed

Meanwhile, the House Committee members ordered the NFF to reverse their decision on the setting up of a normalization committee in Plateau and Nasarawa state.

The Committee also charged the NFF to resolve the issues regarding the two affected State Football Associations (Plateau and Nasarawa) where Normalisation Committees were set up.

“What we are simply saying following petitions received from the two State FAs is that the Federation should respect and go back to their statute to restore peace and order in Nigeria football,” the Chairman House Committee on Sports, Honourable Ekene Adams said.
