Africa's richest man Aliko Dangote

Former Nigerian international Henry believes the major problem of lack of funds affecting Nigerian football can be solved if Africa's richest men can invest in it.

If Aliko Dangote is interested to consider buying majority shares in English Premier League club, Arsenal FC, then he can be convinced to invest a fraction of his wealth in Nigeria football,” Nwosu told Vanguard Sports.

Recently, players of the Super Falcons protested their unpaid wages following triumph at the Africa Women Cup of Nations tournament.

Nwosu urged the NFF to reorganise its marketing department in order to attract Nigeria's richest like Aliko Dangote.

Capital Oil boss Dr. Ifeany Ubah is a huge investor in Nigerian sports and owns FC Ifeanyi Ubah, current Federation Cup champions, who play in the Nigeria Professional Football League.

The former Super Eagles man faulted the leadership of the NFF for the frequent lack of funds but however insisted that talking to the right people can help them address their financial shortcomings.

Nwosu called on the FA to look beyond the Government for funding after it helped pay for the bonuses of the Super Eagles and Falcons.
