Billionaire investor, Mr Femi Otedola has stated that he has $250,000 in the bank for the Nigerian national football team, the Super Eagles, if they should bring home the African Cup of Nation’s trophy.
The billionaire made this pledge recently in light of the success of the national team in the ongoing AFCON 2021 tournament taking place in Cameroun.
Other prominent figures who have promised to reward the Super Eagles include the Founder of Air Peace, Mr Allen Onyema who pledged N50 million naira to the team if they keep up the good work of bringing togetherness and happiness to the Nigerian people by bringing home the AFCON trophy.
If the Super Eagles should win the AFCON tournament this year it would be the fourth time they would be winning as Nigeria had previously won in 1980, 1994 and 2013.
The football game kicked off on the 9th of January 2022 and since then the super eagles have played three times, winning all three matches.
In the first match against Egypt, the super eagles won 1-0, the second one against Sudan, Nigeria won 3-1, and the third one against Guinea-Bissau, Nigeria won 2-0.
