Nigeria Increases Winning Bonus For Eagles Against Ghana

The Minister of Sports, Bolaji Abdullahi has promised to give the Super Eagles 100,000 dollars if they secured a final ticket at the African Nations Championship (CHAN).

A statement issued by Julius Ogunro, the minister?s Special Adviser on Media and Strategy, said the incentive was government?s way of motivating the players to give their best and triumph.

The statement quoted the minister as saying that the country would extend its dominance of African football if the boys qualified for the final and went ahead to win the trophy.

The minister, however, urged the team not to be carried away by its victory against Morocco but to focus on the ultimate prize, which is the CHAN trophy.

He said the team had shown passion, discipline and commitment, which were hallmarks of the Nigerian spirit.

“With the kind of overwhelming joy that followed the victory across our country, one cannot but feel that perhaps, these players are destined to win the trophy.

“They can be confident that a grateful nation will remember for a long time to come that they, with typical Nigerian grit and determination, have extended our dominance of African football.

“I have no doubt in my mind that, with the Almighty God on our side and with the same commitment and will to succeed, the home-based Super Eagles will continue to excel,? the minister said.
