Financial aid to Nigeria Football Federation

Confirming to Bolaji Abdullahi, Nigeria’s Sports Minster, the Nigerian government assures Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) adequate financial assistance to the country’s team for the World Cup scheduled to be held in June. He articulated that the fund will be accessible for the team in good time. Further he expressed, “The Nigeria football Federation has submitted their financial plan to the National Sports Commission and we have finished work on it and sent it to the appropriate quarters and we believe that it would receive priority attention.
I have no doubt in my mind that the plan for the World Cup would go very well. We would give all the support that is necessary to the Nigerian football Federation to succeed because if they succeed, everyone is happy.” Nigeria will face Mexico on March 5 for a warm-up game and some other matched are also lined up for the team. Also, they plan to set up a training camp in Houston, USA from 25th May.
