At the just concluded 2019 African Cup of Nations, Nigerian billionaires, Aliko Dangote and Femi Otedola together pledged $75,000 for every goal scored by the Super Eagles in the knockout stage of the tournament.

It may be recalled that billionaires Aliko Dangote and Femi Otedola had both promised the Super Eagles a combined $75,000 for every goal scored in their remaining matches at the just-concluded Africa Cup of Nations.

While Dangote made a pledge of $50,000 to the team for every goal in their remaining two matches at the championship, Otedola promised $25,000 for every goal.

That was after the Eagles’ impressive performance against South Africa at the quarter-final of the competition.

The Nigeria Football Federation in a statement had revealed how the pledge came to be, saying that, “On a visit to the team’s Le Meridien Cairo Airport Hotel on Thursday (July 11, 2019) morning, during which he urged the players to even redouble their efforts in order to cross the semi-final stage on Sunday, President of the NFF, Mr. Amaju Pinnick, put a call through to the two well-known philanthropists and tasked them to commit to supporting the team.”

Today, Femi Otedola redeemed his pledge to representatives of the Super Eagles.
He shared the photo above and wrote, ‘Integrity is keeping your word. I redeemed my pledge of $25000 per goal to representatives of the Super Eagles (L-R) Chidi Ngoka (Equipment Manager), Enebi Achor (Team Manager) and Defender Kenneth Omeruo today in my office’.
