President Goodluck Jonathan on Sunday lifted the spirits of the Super Eagles, when he said all their outstanding Brazil 2014 World Cup appearance fees have been ordered cleared by Sports Minister, Tammy Danagogo.
He also promised to clear any outstanding that the team may incur in the course of the championship, including outstanding FIFA grants to the NFF that will be offset later by the soccer ruling house. The Minister made this declaration while addressing players and officials of the national team at their Brasilia Palace Hotel camp in the Brazilian capital.
The Minister also announced that Nigerian business mogul, Dr Mike Adenuga, has sent through him the sum of $250,000 to boost the team ahead of their clash against France on Monday.
“He said this is a token and if the team goes ahead and shocks the world he will join Mr President to shock the team,” he declared.
