The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola has asked for an immediate presentation to his ministry on the promise made to members of the 1994 AFCON-winning Super Eagles team.
Fashola made the request on Monday in Abuja while presenting on behalf of government documents of an apartment allocated to former Super Eagles Chief Coach Clemens Westerhof.
He said the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) must immediately document names and details of members of the team who were yet to have the promise made to them fulfilled.
The team led by Westerhof had won the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) at Tunisia.
This had come 14 years after the country’s first triumph in Lagos in 1980.
The team went on to shock the world at the 1994 FIFA World Cup in the U.S., where they lost in the second round 1-2 to Italy after extra time.
The feat had spurred the Federal Government led then by the now late Gen. Sani Abacha to make a promise of presenting apartments to members of the team.
Speaking earlier, Amaju Pinnick, the President of NFF, had said the presentation to Westerhof would go a long way in rebuilding confidence in the country’s national players.
