Air Peace Redeems N20m Pledge To Eagles For Away Win Vs Cape Verde

Air Peace has redeemed the N20 million pledge it made to the Super Eagles prior to their second round Group C 2022 World Cup qualifier against Cape Verde in Mindelo.

It would be recall that Chairman of Air Peace Allen Onyeama made the promise as the team prepared to jet out for the second group game.

The Eagles who flew to and fro Cape Verde in one of Air Peace’s ultramodern Embraer 195-E2 aircraft, received the cheque at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, on arrival.

In appreciation for the gesture, a statement on the Eagles Instagram page read: ”We thank our sponsor Air Peace for keeping to their promise. We are motivated to keep the pace and momentum when proceedings resume in October. We meeeuuuve!”

Despite conceding against the run of play, the Eagles fought back to beat Cape Verde 2-1 to record their second group win.

Nigeria  top the group on six points and will take on Central African Republic, in next month’s double header.

    I rarely see or never come across in the news where private or public company will be giving cash gifts to national team for winning matches, but it always happens only in Africa where big men or companies will be dashing monies to national teams for winning matches. This is how come they become the So-Called Godfathers and influence sporting decisions.

    The NFF has to draw a map to be financially independent because to me this dependency is the reason why they always remain broke. Very disgusting and demeaning scenes with Pinnick and team members gathering to take a picture with check of 20million naira to be shared amongst the team. I keep saying it that we find ourselves in the worst African Era, yet we cry that we are treated as the least or poor continent during the COVID-19 vaccine donations.

      You ought to be ashamed of this your comment.
      Firstly, N20m means nothing right now to this crop of players. If the money were to be shared equally, we are looking at just over $2,000 per head ($1:N540).
      Secondly, if at all you listened to the speech the CEO gave before making the cash promise (as a motivation to the team), you will not be talking with this depth of emptiness.
      Thirdly, if you feel that this is how to purchase a place as a “God father”, you just put out there a complete show of a lack of tact and strategy.
      Lastly, what have you done in your complete life to put a smile on the face of people in your community as a “socially responsible citizen”. It’s easy to criticize.
      My advise; count your teeth with your tongue. If you have nothing productive to say, just keep quiet. Even fools are assumed ingenious when they put on a “keep shut” disposition.
