Super Falcons Protest Non-payment Of Allowances [Photos]

Members of the female football national team, the Super Falcons, are at this moment protesting the non-payment of their allowances by the Nigerian Football Federation.

The players early Wednesday stormed the National Assembly Complex brandishing placards to drive home their demands.
Some of their placards read, “We are your children, pity us”; “Let us respect women”; “female football deserves respect.”
President Buhari is expected at the National Assembly to present the 2017 Budget to the legislators. They are hoping to get reprieve from his visit to the NASS.

Since winning the 10th edition of the African Women championship just held in Cameroon, the victorious team members have been held up in a hotel in Abuja, many days after they returned to the country with the trophy, owing to non-payment of their entitlements.

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

See photos of their protests.
