“The NFF is very much alive to its responsibilities but will not tolerate disrespect for the body and Nigeria by anyone.


“NFF can never be happy owing coaches in its employ which is the reason why the present administration took the unprecedented step of putting in place a sponsor specifically to pay coaches’ salaries.


“Last week, we paid all the national team coaches and we are putting in place mechanism to ensure we don’t owe them going forward.


“We commend AITEO for its belief in the NFF and for always making funds available to pay the coaches.”
