Akwa Ibom State Governor Emmanuel Udom has pledged to give to the Nigerian football national team Super Eagles $10,000 for every goal they score.

He visited the Super Eagles in their training camp in Akwa Ibom State as they prepare for the 2018 World Cup qualifier against the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon.

He said:

We are here because there is nothing as good as appreciating people, especially when the people are working for the general good. A love not expressed is a love wasted and so we are here to tell you that we appreciate what you are doing for Nigeria.

I also want to tell you that no matter how wild a cat is, there is a place you will hold it and it will not be able to harm you. Go there and win the game for us.

Udom also redeemed his pledge of $30,000 to the Super Eagles for their 3-1 win against Algeria in a 2018 World Cup qualifier last year.

    This is highly preposterous and unbelievable…. people are struggling to recover from the tragic flood that took over their community in benue state, here we have a governor promising to give out money in the name of football when we know that the very same Nigeria team will eventually disappoint us.

    how is this nonsense contributing to the betterment of the country as a whole??…… this money would go a long way in helping the devasted flood victims., we have misplace priorities all over the place in this country.

    We are constantly speaking about the importance of togetherness and a United Nigeria but in reality we very far from it.

    Being a Nigerian is a curse I’m sorry to say but this is how I feel. I’m beginning to see reasons with Kanu, let’s dissolve this complete failure of a country called Nigeria.
