The Nigeria Football Federation gets financial boost

The cash-strapped Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has received a financial boost from an energy company worth around $9.2m over the next five years.

The deal with the Aiteo Group will commence on 1 May.

“This will make it easier for us to plan adequately for our national teams,” NFF boss Amaju Pinnick said.

“It is important to note that this will also take care of the national team coach’s salary.”

Pinnick hopes that this means no repeats of problems paying national team coaches that has troubled the NFF in the past.

“There will be no owing of coaches for the next five years,” he added.
