After winning their 8th African Women Cup of Nation title on Saturday, December 3, 2016 beating hosts Cameroon in the final duel, the Super Falcons have vowed to take on an open protest against their unpaid wages and allowances by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
The Super Falcons have arrived Nigeria with the 2016 AWCON trophy, and it was gathered that the players are furious on the treatment melted on them by the NFF and even the Sports ministry.
It was learnt that the Nigeria Minister of Sports Solomon Dalung and his entourages were in Yaounde on Saturday, December 3, 2016 on a chartered flight to watch the final, but never offer any word to the victorious Super Falcons after their triumph.
A player who spoke on the condition of anonymity stated that the Super Falcons have not received a dime from the NFF or the Sports Ministry before and after the competition.
''You won't believe that Solomon Dalung chartered a flight to come and watch the final, but this man was telling us that there is no money for us and we now asked where he saw the money to hire a chartered flight.
''We are not being treated like a professional, and we are going to protest unless the needful is done by the NFF or the Sports Ministry,'' the player explained.
