Nigeria Senate has condemned the inability of the Nigeria Football Federation to pay the protesting Super Falcons their entitlements, asking the sports ministry and the Nigeria Football Federation to pay the players immediately.
The lawmakers lamented the trend of maltreatment of Nigerian athletes before, during and after international competitions.
The Falcons had won the African Women’s Cup of Nations for the eighth time in Cameroon on Saturday.
But they have yet to be paid their allowances and bonuses as the NFF said it had no money to pay them.
This forced the players to protest against their treatment by the NFF.
The Chairman, Senate Committee on Sports, Senator Obinna Ogba, while moving a motion by raising a point of order, decried the treatment meted out to the victorious team.
