Youth and Sports Minister, Solomon Dalung, has charged the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to pay the U-23 national team’s Coach, Samson Siasia, all his emoluments.Siasia and his wife, Eunice, paid Dalung a visit yesterday in his office in Abuja to thank the minister for his support to the national U-23 team from Atlanta to Rio, where they won a bronze medal in the football event of the Olympics.

At the visit, Siasia officially informed Dalung that his contract with the NFF has ended.Speaking at the event, Dalung directed the NFF Secretary-General, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi, who was also present to ensure that Siasia  got the arrears of his five-month’s salaries.

“Please pay him his five months’ salaries. They said he has resigned but he just said that his contract expired after the Olympics. His contract expired but you owe him five months’ salaries and you have gone to employ a foreign coach and will pay him in dollars.

“It means you don’t like yourselves and nobody will sympathize with you. Please spare me the stress of talking about this salary issue or going to war with you on it. Please pay him and other coaches their outstanding salaries,” Dalung said.Responding, Dr. Sanusi said efforts were already being made to pay the coaches their salaries.

“We have held meetings and we are waiting for the money to drop. The money is already there in our account but we need to regularize the TSA procedures before we can claim the money. We are almost through with the process. Once that is concluded, we will pay them,” Sanusi assured.

    A labourer is worthy of his hire. I wonder why the NFF has to be ordered to pay Samson Siasia. I thought there was a contract in place which has to be honoured.

    Thank you Minister for your official intervention.
    Nigerians now know better that all that happened in USA and Rio were programmed by the Satanic Angels of NFF. But Mr Minister ,stay clear of Amos o.

    Workers wages, is one thing that God promised in the Bible that if you fail to pay and the worker cries to him he will answer. This is where government sin most. Workers cry daily on to God and as God has promised, he will answer them. Do we wonder why government is facing agony with no way out? But government pay for thousands of pilgrims to go on tourist visits to Saudi Arabia and Israel. The prayers of unpaid workers is tormenting the government but do the pilgrims ever remember to spear their time from shopping to pray for the government that sponsor them?

    This is how to fight corruption, by owing workers five months salaries. Nigeria is a joke and the biggest jokers in the world.
    some one basic salary is 25,000 naira a month and then the person is being owed for seven or eleven months. I wonder and the next we hear is that government is fighting corruption. Nigeria should not exist.
