BREAKING!!! Buhari Bows to Pressure, Promises to Pay Super Falcons in 2 Days but… (Photos)

The protesting Super Falcons have returned to their Agura Hotel, Abuja after the Presidency promised to pay the money owed them by the Nigeria Football Federation on Friday but this is coming after disgracing the victorious players and ridiculing the nation.

The female national team members who protested at the National Assembly gates on Wednesday morning with placards over the non-payment of their allowances by the Nigerian Football Federation, had some days ago, won the 10th African Women Cup of Nations, beating hosts Cameroon 1-0 in an explosive final in Yaounde.

It was a record eighth title for the Nigerian ladies who instead of being honoured and celebrated were ridiculed as their allowances were denied them forcing them to protest.

It is believed each player is entitled to about $25,000.

The girls, however, returned to their hotel after the Chief of Staff to President Buhari, Abba Kyari, addressed them and promised to offset their bills in two days.
