Super Falcons protest at NASS as Buhari presents 2017 budget

14 December 2016, 08:17

Abuja - Nigeria’s senior national women’s team, the Super Falcons on Wednesday stormed the National Assembly to protest the non-payment of their entitlement after winning the Africa Women’s Cup of Nations (AWCON) in Cameroon.

President Muhammadu Buhari is due to present the 2017 budget to the joint house of the National Assembly today, and the ladies are hoping to get his attention.

After winning the 10th AWCON for a record eight time, the super Falcons have not been paid their entitlement by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), and have remained in their Abuja hotel since returning from Cameroon in protest.

They protest daily on the streets of Abuja and have vowed never to leave the hotel until their allowances were paid, Punch reports.

Some of their placards read, “We are your children, pity us”; “Let us respect women”; “female football deserves respect.”
