Unpaid bonuses and allowance of players and staff of Nigeria Super Eagles, have been cleared, according the President of Nigeria Football federation, Amaju Pinnick.
In a recent interview with BSN Sports, Amaju Pinnick said the federation should be praised for trying as much as possible to pay the backlog of allowances, despite financial difficulty.
