    Pls help us appeal to Minister of Sports Solomon Dalung to open the camp for U23 Dream Team who are having their qualifier against Sudan U23 on June 5 2019 which exactly One month and two days. He, Solomon Dalung, is always the first to cry out whenever there is delay in the camping of any of the National teams by the NFF. Now this one is under his control and he is failing in his duties to organise an early camping exercise for only one of the National teams being put under his control. The coach is crying out for early camping and up till now the Minister Solomon Dalung is yet to answer his request. The same minister Solomon Dalung will be the first to condemn the NFF if it is from the board. What a shame. Nigerians are watching when the camp will be provide by the Sport Minister and we will note the date so that we Nigerian will know whom to blame. We are watching.

    Is just a pity that our Football administrators did not know what they are doing. Are your telling me that these administrator have not been collecting salaries/bonus/allowance? The people that did the work are not paid. Is shameful. This can only happen in Africa.

    This is what will continue to happen when u put a round pole in a square hole

    MONKEY DEY WORK, BABOON DEY CHOP.
    Libya that we defeated, their players have collected their match bonuses.
    Why is our own always like this? Pinnick has been doing great in recent times. He should not allow this stinking mess to tarnish his reputation.
    Kennedy once said – ASK NOT WHAT YOUR COUNTRY CAN DO FOR YOU, BUT WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR COUNTRY.
    Hmmmm, if you are Nigerian, you can’t afford to do this. If you don’t ask for your entitlement, na hunger go kill you and your family. So, I have no issues with the player who said he may not be available for our next match. The players should be paid their dues ASAP. The disgrace and embarrassment is enough already.
