Following the recent intervention of the Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare by way of giving financial and material support to the families of former Nigeria internationals, the Ministry has written the NFF and mandated it to come up with welfare plans for players.

In a letter signed by the Permanent Secretary Ministry of Youth and Sports Development, Gabriel Aduda, the President of the NFF Amaju Pinnick was directed to furnish the Ministry with its plans for welfare assistance to players.

The letter is expected to stir up the NFF to action following wide outcry over the poor welfare of most ex-players and their families.

It can be recalled that the Sports Minister had offered financial and material support to the mothers of Rashidi Yekini, Samuel Okwaraji and late quartermiler Sunday Bada.
