The drama continues as the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) is cutting off Sunday Oliseh‘s aide’s salary and benefits, following the coach’s YouTube rant.
A few days ago, head coach of the Super Eagles, Sunday Oliseh released a series of videos clapping back at the team’s critics, calling them “insane” and former teammates who he called “bench-warmers”. Click here to watch the videos.
According to Vanguard, the NFF has now cut off Oliseh’s special assistant, Tijani Babangida‘s salary. Babangida was a former Oliseh teammate.
But in a surprise move apparently borne out of their red account, the NFF have written to inform the coach that henceforth they would no longer be responsible for his aide’s salary.
An authentic source from the Glass house informed Sports Vanguard last night that they do not have the wherewithal to continue with his aide’s salary and allowances.
We further gathered that some people had raised eyebrows to the massive pay packet of the former wing wizard especially as he also partakes in the bonuses and allowances paid to the Super Eagles players.
“Tijani’s pay was formerly put at N1.6 million but some NFF staff cried out that even the Secretary General was not earning that much. It was now pegged at N600, 000 per month with the bonuses and allowances attached to it”, our source further stated.
But all that has come to a stop as red-eyed NFF have informed the Chief Coach that they could no longer bear the burden of his aide’s payment. “If he wants to retain him, he can also pay him from his own pockets”, our source emphasized.
