An accuse has been laid on Nigeria Football Federation by the Designer of the attire worn by Super Eagles of Nigeria during the FIFA world cup in Russia.
The designer of the Super Eagles of Nigeria’s ceremonial attire spoke out saying the NFF failed to pay for the outfit.
The clothing brand’s CEO, Esimaje Awani, made the allegation in a post on GT Stitches’ Instagram page on Thursday, eight months after the World Cup ended.
He said: “My brother Amaju has stopped picking my calls cos (sic) of this money. Someone at the office told me court is my only option!! What a shame!!”
Responding to a critic who criticised him for “coming out now to spill this”, Awani challenged the NFF to deny his claims.
He said: “Please, let NFF come out and say their part! I have not been paid period. Some persons might not be patient as I was on the subject matter.”
There has been no official comment on the matter from the NFF.
