After three commercial banks donated the sum of 100 million to support both the National Men’s Basketball team D’Tigers and Female National team D’Tigress. The D’Tigress have sent a message to the ministry on their official account, urging them to pay the Money to the personal account of each players and officials.
The message was accompanied with some examples sighted on how previous rewards go into a “black hole”.
According the D’Tigress, in 2017 when a sum of over 1 Million naira was given to them by the President, Muhammadu Buhari, they heard nothing about the money since then.
Message by D’Tigress
D’tigressng We want to thank Zenith, GTB and Access bank for their tremendous support on our Road to Tokyo.
Ministry should please distribute and pay into the players and officials account directly, like in 2017 when H.E President Buhari gave D’Tigress N1M and N500k hand shake respectively before it goes into a Black hole.
Money should not be paid into any Care-taker or Federation account. Players, Officials Allowances, and other services are still been owed since 2018 World Cup ($73,118 +)FYI this is not a Substitute for those debts.
These Players & Officials needs to be Celebrated and Honored with Houses, Monetary Gifts and 6 Strategic Arenas built in their Honor across Nigeria.Senegal has set the Bar extremely high as a small a Nation compare to Nigeria. The Presidency, our Billionaires Mrs. Alakija (Matron), Alhaji Dangote (Patron), Minister of Finance Mrs. Ahmed (Matron).
We’ll be honored if you answer the call to take the Team under your wings beyond Tokyo Olympics 2021 so we can leave a Legacy for next Generation together.
Meanwhile, reactions have trailed this message, as some Nigerians have slammed the D’Tigress, for passing such message with an official account. Some on the other hand said, that was the best way to speak to the ministry.
