Super Falcons To Get Salary After Weeks Of Protest

President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday ordered the Ministry of Finance to pay the Super Falcons their  entitlements.

The Falcons, who beat  hosts Cameroon 1-0 to win the   African Women’s  Cup of Nations in Yaounde on December 3,  were forced to embark on protest in Abuja  after the Nigeria Football Federation failed to pay them their  bonuses and allowances.

The eighth time African champions marched on the Presidential Villa on Wednesday to press home their demands.

The Chief of Staff to the President, Mr. Abba Kyari, told  State House correspondents at the Presidential Villa that Buhari had directed the  Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun, and the Minister of Youth and Sports, Mr. Solomon Dalung, to ensure that  the players were paid  today.

Kyari,  who just returned from a medical trip abroad said, he had conveyed the president’s directive to the players,  who staged a protest to the gate of the Presidential Villa earlier on Wednesday.
