- Super Falcons have been abandoned in Abuja by the Sports ministry and the Nigeria Football Federation
- NFF President Amaju Pinnick and the Sports minister Solomon Dalung have flown to London
- It was learnt that the administrators went to sign a new sponsorship kits deal with NIKE
After winning the 2016 African Women Cup of Nations Championship where they defeated Cameroon 1-0 in the final, the Super Falcons have been abandoned in Abuja by the Sports Ministry and the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
It was gathered that the Sports Minister Solomon Dalung, NFF President Amaju Pinnick and the NFF second Vice President had traveled to London to sign up a new kit sponsorship deal with NIKE for the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
Since their return from Cameroon, the Super Falcons have protested against their unpaid wages and entitlements prior and before the competition, and the NFF officials have explained that they are not buoyant enough to pay them.
The Super Falcons have now vowed that they will not leave the Agura hotel in Abuja until the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) pay them all their entitlements.
''We are not going to leave this hotel until the NFF and the Sports ministry pay us all our money,'' an angry Super Falcons player said.
