Former Nigeria International, Finidi George has urged the federal government to fulfill its promise to the 1994 Super Eagles team members.
Finidi, who was a member of the 1994 squad that won the country’s second Africa Cup of Nations trophy, said the government promised to give each member of the 1994 Super Eagles squad a house but the promised has not been fulfilled for over 20 years it was made.
“…I’m much concerned about is the fulfillment of promises made to us”, Finidi told The Interview.
“We took it upon ourselves to go extra lengths to make the country proud and that was why we achieved success and in return we expected the country to pay us back.
“We were promised houses but up till this moment we are yet to be given the properties.”
Finidi said though some of his teammates are now dead, it is important for the government to fulfill the promise.
“A few of us have died and we who are still alive are ageing, so we would like to have the government fulfill its promise so that we can tell our children that this is what we did for the country and this is what we were rewarded with.
“We just hope the NFF can table it before the government and I believe it will be done, Finidi said.
