How Best Could Courtney Dike Be Honoured?

Super Falconets striker to the 2014 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Courtney Dike shocked many Nigerian football faithful when she politely rejected the $7,000 due to her for helping Nigeria reach the final of the competition.

This gesture has led to reports that the younger sister of Super Eagles striker, Bright Dike, could be rewarded by the Federal Government and the women wing of the Nigeria Football Federation for her patriotism.


Many Nigerians are concerned about what the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) officials intend doing with Courtney’s money. The discerning fans fear the money will end up in the private pockets of the NFF officials.

How do you think the money should be spent? And more importantly, how should Dike be honoured for this show of love for her country?

    Courtney is undoubtedly a patriot and should be accorded the due of a patriot. A national award from the president and commander in chief himself.
    God bless Nigeria

    She is a good patriotism and someone that love her country more than money. She deserves national award. But our government will not honor someone like her because will prefer to honour people with questionable characters. I would have appreciated her more let assuming she collected the money and donated it to charity homes or foundations instead of given the money back to NFF because we wouldn’t hear anything about it. The NFF will pocket the money for real.

    Sound surprise to me , but only God know why she rejected the money… If a lady like her can do such , why can’t our so called government learn from her and they all see what God have in stock for them than keeping our money to their next generation (( 30 ))… Nigeria need serious prayer.. As for Dike only God will reward you for what you have done , you make us proud that is not only the money that matter than the love you have for our country.. Be bless

    Invest in youth development, their are several football academics around that are not well funded. Such fund can be used to support them.

  • HARUNA 7 years ago

    This is what i call patriotism,i hope others 2 can learn from her that representing your country is a priviledge and honour and not an avenue to make money.

  • Uncle Nasir 7 years ago

    Courtney is the kind of person Nigeria needs at this moment. Realy she’s heroine and well dedicated Nigerian. This type of money should be spent to orpanage children. Cuz they are in need of it.

  • Lukeman Mohmed 7 years ago

    She should not only be given National Award, but be provided with a decent accommodation (House) in a place of her choice for her patriotism.

  • Falonipe mosun 7 years ago

    Dike should be a mirror through which our senior footballers especially super eagles players should be looking through.she is a dedicated Nigerian rather than those that will be figthing over match bonus.

  • No one cares to ask why she refused the money however i am happy with her patriotism. The money should be used for a Cultney foundation to help future National team players who through injuries could no longer continue their game.

  • kehinde 7 years ago

    she is a true nigerian.I hope some of our government officials can do the same.The money could be used to get life assurance for her,to secure her future.

  • Yusuf Ango 7 years ago

    What sense does it make to honor someone just for refusing to accept financial reward that is due to them? The matter should ordinarily be for the records, and not for calls to accord National honors to such a person. This is just a reflection of our warped sense of values. We, as a people, have lost all sense of decency because of, may be corruption? The Girl should be left alone for posterity, and for others to follow suit. When someone should decide on that course, let them state precisely where the money should be put to use for a greater Nigeria.
