The Minister for Sports Development, John Owan-Enoh said that President Bola Tinubu in a clear commitment to sports development has approved the backlog of outstanding payments that are due for the national teams and coaches of various sports, totalling about twelve billion naira (N12b).

The minister disclosed this on Saturday, January 6, while addressing numerous guests that graced his thanksgiving service to appreciate God for his appointment as minister in the Federal Executive Cabinet.

He noted that no president of the country has shown the level of commitment displayed by President Tinubu in the development of sports in the country.

He said: “The senior team national coach has not been paid for 15 months, the salary is about $1.350 million. The senior national team and other national teams; females, under 20 had a backlog of unpaid allowances, unpaid promises, and all of that piling up close to about N12 billion, the president has approved all of that payment. There’s no better way to show support and leadership than what he has done.”

The minister said President Tinubu is committed to returning happiness to Nigerian homes because “when we win there’s happiness spread across the land and we are working hard.”
