Unpaid allowances: Former Falcons coach thanks Dalung

  |   Nigeria News

Former Super Falcons Coach, Godwin Izilein was almost prostrating when he told Sunday Vanguard Sports how grateful he was to Youth and Sports Development minister, Barrister Solomon Dalung who has directed the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF to pay him his allowances which have been held up since 2004.

"I am begging them to locate the letter and pay me my money as I have suffered so much since 2004 after serving the country meritoriously," Izilein pleaded, adding that all efforts to reach the NFF officials have proved abortive as "suddenly their telephones are no longer going through."

Coach Izilein had said then that he made efforts to plead with the players not to protest as their money would be eventually paid, stressing that the players' protest and the waving of the Biafra flag done to embarrass the government of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo then was the handiwork of a former Super Eagles player based in South Africa.
