The designer of the super Eagles 2018 World Cup outfit, G Stitches has accused the Nigerian Football Federation of failing to pay for the outfit.
G Stitches CEO, Esimaje Awani, alleged in a post on GT Stitches Instagram page on Thursday – eight months after the World Cup had been concluded – that the NFF still owed him for the Super Eagles 2018 World Cup Outfit.
He said: “NFF refused to pay for ceremonial outfit almost one year after the World Cup! This can only happen in Nigeria!!”
Awani, who refused to disclose how much the deal was worth, accused NFF President Amaju Pinnick of avoiding him over the debt.
He said: “My brother Amaju has stopped picking my calls cos of this money. Someone at the office told me the court is my only option!! What a shame!!”.
Responding to a critic who criticised him for “Coming out now to spill this”, the clothing brand’s CEO challenged the NFF to deny his Super Eagles 2018 World Cup Outfit debt claims.
He said: “Please, let NFF come out and say their part! I have not been paid period. Some persons might not be patient as I was on the subject matter.”
There has been no official comment on the Super Eagles of Nigeria’s ceremonial attire to the Russia 2018 World Cup matter from the NFF.
