NFF rejects reports that Super Eagles players are still being owed salaries despite President Tinubu’s intervention

The Nigeria Football Federation and players of the Super Eagles have rejected an online report which claimed that players of the team have not been paid from monies given by the Presidency to the NFF to offset their bonuses and allowances.

Late last year, the presidency released monies to the NFF for payment of outstanding bonuses and allowances of players and officials of the various National Teams.

However, an online publication on Monday put together what the NFF has called  a “tissues of lies” and challenged the writer to come forward with evidence of his claims.

“The report is absolutely false, in every ramification, and we challenge the owner of the website and writer to come forward with proof of the claims. We want him to name the players who spoke to him, because these are all tissues of lies.

“Players and officials of the Super Eagles have been paid for all matches played at the AFCON, yet he claimed the team was paid for only three matches. His outlandish claim of the team being owed for 25 matches is the biggest lie ever concocted by any writer.”

The NFF also said the online report also falsely claimed that only members of the NFF Board and staff of the Secretariat have been paid their outstanding allowances from the government money.

“This story is a shame. No player of the Super Eagles spoke to the writer. It is all pure fabrication,” a senior player told

“The story is absolute bunkum. People should make an effort to verify whatever they hear from anywhere before going to the press. It is clear that this writer did not even hear anything; he simply brought forth something from his own imagination.”
