Cash Crisis Hits Super Eagles’ Supporters Club

Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]


About 250 members of the Nigeria Football Supporters Club, NFSC, will
miss watching the match between Nigeria and France in Brasilia today as
they had to leave Brazil yesterday for Nigeria due to paucity of funds.
According to some aggrieved members, the return ticket for most
members of the club was for June 29 and others for July 1, but the
leadership did not notify the affected until Saturday, even as their flight
was billed for 12:40am yesterday.
Only 100 members of the club left Sao Paulo yesterday for Brasilia, about
16 hours drive by road.
A member, who gave her name as Uju, said: “We have enough funds.
Most of us paid N300, 000. I paid N300, 000 as money charged. I spent
N80, 000 as visa fee, but I was left in Nigeria and had to spend another
N350, 000 to get to Brazil.
“President Goodluck Jonathan gave the club N50m and our major
sponsors – Globacom, Guinness and even Alhaji Aliko Dangote.”
Another member of the club, who gave his name simply as Oba, said: “I
paid N300, 000, but since I got to Brazil I have been feeding myself.
“I have also spent my pocket money for all the trips on the road to
Curitiba, Cuiaba, Porto Alegre and back to Sao Paolo. How can the leaders
arrange that we are leaving after the group stage? Were they pessimistic
about the Super Eagles’ performance?”
Another member, who also gave her name simply as Titilayo, said: “Even
though they had made such arrangements, now that the Super Eagles
are in the Round of 16, the leaders are supposed to reschedule our flights
by extending it. When we get home, the President- General and the
national chairman must explain to us what they did with our money.”
A member from the Lagos State chapter of the club, however, noted that
the crisis had resulted from what he called internal crisis in the club.
He alleged that a faction of the club had hoarded funds donated by some
multi-national organisations.
But the President-General of the club, Dr. Rafiu Ladipo, who admitted the
crisis, said: “Some members have to go for some of us to still stay to
support the Super Eagles.”
