Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Alhaji Abba Kyari has pleaded with Super Falcons to give them 48 hours to attend to their problems.

The senior National Women’s team today protested over their unpaid match bonuses and wages as they vowed to stay on in their hotel in Abuja.

The women who defeated Cameroon one-nil last two weeks to conquer Africa are being owed 25,000 dollars each.

www. SportstalkAfrica.com gathered from authoritative source that their bonuses for qualifiers, camp allowance and tournament have not been paid.

We also gathered that that the players were given 500,000 naira each in Cameroon after they qualified for the semi- final of African Women’s Championship.

The source also told www.sportstalkAfrica.com that Asisat Oshoala left last Saturday because she has important thing to attend to in United Kingdom not because she is afraid of victimization if she is involded in the protest.

Confederation of Africa will give the 10th time Champions Falcons $80,000 for winning 2016 African Women’s Championship in Cameroon.
