NSC out to sabotage Eagles - NFF



The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has declared that money problems may scuttle the chances of the Super Eagles at this year’s Afcon in South Africa.

A member of the federation’s executive committee who pleaded anonymity revealed this.

“The sum of N220 million has been approved by the federal government for the NFF to prosecute the 2013 Afcon programme while N790 million annual allocation has also been approved,” the NFF chief told supersport.com.

The NFF official said the NSC’s failure to release the money to the federation has "caused untold hardship and embarrassment to the football house and the Super Eagles."

“We (the NFF) have just been trying to see that things go smoothly but this situation has caused untold hardship and embarrassment to the football house and the Super Eagles.

“We have resorted to borrowing just to ensure that things go smoothly. This is sad because the NSC has no role to play at the Nations Cup.

“They have received the money and have refused to release it to the federation, The money in question represent allocation and it is not a gift so I don’t understand why we will not have received the funds with less than two days to the kickoff of the competition,” the NFF member said.

An official of the NSC who spoke to supersport.com on Thursday confirmed the claims of the NFF but assured that the "funds would soon hit the NFF accounts."
