The Nigeria Football Federation has said it is not a big deal that the Super Eagles and staff are owed some months salaries.
According to the Guardian, Rohr is yet to get his bonuses for 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification and his salary for two months.
“It’s evident that Gernot Rohr is not happy that the NFF has not paid his 2018 World Cup qualification bonus over a year after qualifying the Eagles for the competition in Russia,” the source stated.
It was gathered that the NFF General Secretary, Mohammed Sanusi that he is being owed five months’ salary.
Sanusi speaking further said “Did he (Gernot Rohr) complained to anybody that he has not been paid his salary?
“How many media houses have paid their journalists and other staffers in their organisations since seven months ago?
“Gernot Rohr is paid his salary or not, should not be a public issue. Everybody, including Rohr has been paid his or her World Cup bonuses. The Super Eagles Team Secretary can confirm that no one is still being owed any bonus.”
Continuing, Sanusi roared; “I am being owed five months salaries, and nobody cares about my survival. Yes. I’ve not been paid my salary since five months now,”
Staff of the Glass House are not happy at the development arising from the non-payment of their salaries.
“We have not seen this type of treatment and administration since over 18 years some of us have been working here. The Christmas is a few hours away, and there is nothing to celebrate with our families. It has been so bad and harsh. The popular Glass House is no longer what it used to be,” one of the staff revealed to The Guardian.
It will be recalled that the Amaju Pinnick-led NFF had boasted last Thursday in Lagos that the NFF could beat its chest anywhere that it is 60-65% self-funded, saying that corporate Nigeria’s support for Nigerian Football had improved significantly over the years.
The NFF actually celebrated its numerous sponsors in Lagos for their morale and financial support. At the occasion were big wigs and representatives of AITEO Group, Coca-Cola, Nigerian Breweries PLC, Amstel Malta, Zenith Bank PLC, Tropical and General Investments, WAPIC Insurance PLC, Cadbury Nigeria PLC, Emzor Pharmaceuticals, FrieslandCampina WAMCO and Simba Group (TVS: Official Motorycle and Tricycle Partner of the Super Eagles, among others.
