Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has beckoned on the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, to offer equal remuneration to the country’s men and women national football teams.

Bello said this when he featured as the special guest at a football match to mark the International Women’s day at the Goal Project pitch of Moshood Abiola stadium Abuja on Saturday.

He said, “The disparity in payment and treatment of women footballers will no longer be acceptable. They should get equal treatment with their male counterparts in the areas of bonuses, allowances and accommodation,”

“A situation where our players are winning trophies and medals, and making us proud in Nigeria, Africa and the world but the commensurate pay is not given to them is unacceptable. They should get equal treatment to develop women football in the country.

“I strongly demand equity as far as bonuses and other packages are concerned. I am a big advocate of gender equality and I want the NFF to do something to balance the disparity,” Bello stated.
