President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday ordered the immediate payment of all entitlements accrued to the Super Falcons who won the just-concluded CAF African Women Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
The Chief of Staff to the President, Mr. Abba Kyari, disclosed this to State House correspondents at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
He said the Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun, and the Minister of Youth and Sports, Mr. Solomon Dalung, had been directed to ensure the payment latest Thursday.
“I have also told them that all their entitlements will be paid latest by Thursday.
“We have called the Minister of Finance as well as the Minister of Youths and Sports. They will be paid by tomorrow (Thursday). The details, I don’t know.”
The players had planned to protest to the Presidential Villa where they expected the Federal Executive Council meeting to hold.
The meeting however did not hold following the presentation of the 2017 Appropriation Bill to the National Assembly by the President.
After Kyari addressed the placard-carrying players, they thereafter moved to the National Assembly in continuation of their protest.
