The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) second vice-president Shehu Dikko claims the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) spends N200m per match for the Super Eagles.

Speaking on AIT, Dikko claimed only N18m was approved by the sports ministry for the African Women Nations Cup (AWCON 2016) which the Super Falcons won.

With Dikko on Focus Nigeria was NFF president Amaju Pinnick who claimed the NFF had requested for funds for the Falcons as early as July but were denied.

Pinnick recalled how the Super Falcons protested for one week in a South African hotel the non-payment of their allowances twelve years ago.

The former Delta FA chairman also revealed how court cases distract the NFF from achieving its marketing goals.
