Dangote Redeems AFCON $50K Per Goal Pledge To Super Eagles

Dangote AFCON $50K Per Goal Pledge

Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote has redeemed his pledge of $50,000 per goal to the Super Eagles.

This is coming days after Femi Otedola fulfilled his pledge to give the Nigerian team the sum of $25,000 per goal at the just concluded 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

The duo had made the promise before the Eagles’ semi-final clash against Algeria in Egypt.

Algeria, however, denied Nigeria the opportunity of reaching the AFCON final with a 2-1 victory at the Cairo International stadium.

Olakunle Alake, group managing director of Dangote Industries Limited, presented the cheque to Dayo Enebi, team administrator, Chidi Ngoka, equipment manager and John Ogu, Eagles midfielder, in Lagos on Wednesday.

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) took to its official Twitter handle to confirm Dangote’s pledge redemption.
