“As I speak with you, we are still owing the Super Eagles for the matches against Zambia and Algeria, but the memos have gone to the government and are being looked at,” Sanusi said while addressing the Super Falcons in Abuja on Tuesday.
“We must commend the Hon. Minister (Solomon Dalung). He has been energetically pushing the cases of the various national teams. We did the memo for the Women Africa Cup of Nations in October and it is being processed as we speak.”
